Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers’ Charitable Trust provides three scholarships:
Horticulture Level 3 – 4 Scholarship
This is 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 Scholarship
This is available for students studying toward a Diploma in Horticulture.
Horticulture Degree Scholarship
This is available for those studying toward 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, 1 November.
