Ap­pli­ca­tions open for ag schol­ar­ship

The Northland Age - - Local News -

Ap­pli­ca­tions for this year’s Whanga¯rei A&P So­ci­ety agri­cul­tural schol­ar­ship have opened.

The schol­ar­ship has been boosted from $7500 to $9000 over three years. Last year’s win­ner, Samantha Allen, said the schol­ar­ship had been help­ful.

“Not only has re­ceiv­ing the award been an amaz­ing con­tri­bu­tion to­wards my study, but the process of com­pet­ing for it was an ex­cel­lent learn­ing op­por­tu­nity, which I have no doubt will help me later in life,” she said.

“A&P so­ci­eties are do­ing an amaz­ing job, pro­vid­ing a vi­tal con­nec­tion be­tween town and coun­try, and with my — hope­fully soon to be — de­gree, I want to help grow that con­nec­tion.” Samantha is study­ing a for a Bach­e­lor of Vet Sci­ence de­gree at Massey Univer­sity this year.

Schol­ar­ship cri­te­ria and ap­pli­ca­tion forms are avail­able from the Whanga¯rei Agri­cul­tural & Pas­toral So­ci­ety at 127 Bank St, Whanga¯rei, phone (09) 438-3109, or www.whangareiap.org.nz/ed­u­ca­tion/our-schol­ar­ship. Ap­pli­ca­tions close on Septem­ber 21 from students who live within the North­land Re­gional Coun­cil area.
