Every year Horticulture New Zealand (HortNZ) offers scholarships that are open to New Zealand students and trainees who have a special interest in the fruit or vegetable industry and are undergoing significant industry training or education with a vocational provider.
HortNZ is offering a number of $500 scholarships available to industry trainees active in the Horticulture Industry who are studying towards a certificate or diploma. Applications are due in March, reviewed by a panel in April with the selection decision advised in May.
The Selection Team will be looking for:
- Potential contribution to the industry
- Past achievements
- Individual approach, qualities and skills
- Referees’ comments
Selected applicants are reviewed at the end of the year to verify successful completion of their studies, where this is the case, the scholarships are awarded early the following year. The decisions of the Selection Team will be final. Please note that these scholarships do not cover the wine, seed, or arable industry.
