Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers’ Charitable Trust in conjunction with New Zealand Fruitgrowers’ Charitable Trust provides funding towards three horticulture scholarship courses:
Horticulture Level 3 – 4 Scholarships
Available for Fruit Production trainees working towards Level 4 National Certificate of Horticulture (Apprenticeship level). Applicants should be currently employed in the Fruit Industry and working with pipfruit, summerfruit or kiwifruit.
Horticulture Diploma Scholarships
Available for students studying towards a Diploma in Horticulture.
Horticulture Degree Scholarships
Available for those studying towards a Degree or higher-level qualification.
The scholarships are provided to encourage individuals domiciled in Hawke’s Bay to undertake further education or training in horticulture subjects relevant to pipfruit, summerfruit and kiwifruit. Studies can be through a University, Polytech or with other NZQA accredited providers. It is hoped that scholarship recipients will ultimately seek employment in Hawke’s Bay and pass on the benefits of their learning to the Hawke’s Bay community.
Please note applications must be submitted by 5pm, 26th November.
