Zespri Scholarships: $15,000

Zespri is pleased to announce its new scholarship programme.

Each year we will be offering two $15,000 grants to encourage New Zealand’s top secondary students to pursue a career in the country’s fast-growing kiwifruit industry. Recipients will also be supported and mentored throughout their studies as well as being given opportunities to network with industry leaders.

The scholarships are tenable up to three years and contribute to the formal annual tuition fees – up to a maximum of $5000 per year.

Zespri scholarships are aimed at students about to start tertiary study and complement our graduate recruitment scheme, which offers recent graduates a 12-month contract working across the different parts of Zespri’s business.

Further information and the application form can be found here – http://www.zespri.com/companyinformation/sponsorship-awards

Applications close 9 October 2015.

Note: Zespri Scholarships are applicable to students studying any discipline at a New Zealand University, however, examples of how tertiary education will support the horticulture industry are required.
