Goodwill ambassador SCHOLARSHIPS for international students
Palmerston North City Mayor Grant Smith and International Pacific University Chairman Hiroshi Ohashi have signed an agreement to create the Mayor’s Goodwill Ambassador Scholarships for international students.
The annual scholarships, worth a thousand dollars each, will be awarded to six students to help with tuition costs during their first year of study at IPU. The Council funded scholarships are designed to encourage students to choose Palmerston North as their overseas study destination. The students will be required to help out during major cultural events including IPU’s Spring Festival and the City’s Festival of Cultures. They’ll also need to share their experiences of Palmerston North on social media. The agreement was signed at IPU New Zealand’s annual International Spring Festival in September, which celebrates the diversity of cultures at IPU and gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful cherry trees blossoming on the campus.
