Dear Sir/Madam


The 2017 Kelliher Economics Foundation Scholarship


We would like to draw your attention to the Economics scholarships we offer to students who have an aptitude in Economics and who wish to pursue tertiary studies in this subject.


The Kelliher Economics Foundation was set up by the late Sir Henry J Kelliher in 1965 to advance knowledge of Economics to the wider community.  Today the Foundation continues to offer financial support to students wishing to study Economics at a New Zealand tertiary institute.


The Scholarship covers a period of up to three years, with the annual value of each scholarship being the full tuition fees cost per annum, being paid directly to the tertiary institution.  In order for students to maintain their grant they must include economics in their study programme each semester/trimester and achieve satisfactory academic results across all papers.


We are now accepting applications for the Kelliher Economics Foundation Awards for 2017 and would encourage you to promote this scholarship to worthy students.  If you have students you view as ideal candidates, please access an application form at   If further information is required, please contact me on 09 373 5727 or email


The closing date for applications is Tuesday, 12 September 2017.


Applicants will be notified of the judges’ decision by the end of October 2017, with finalist’s ratification in January 2018, once external Year 13 academic results are received.


We hope this provides a welcome opportunity for some of your students and appreciate your support in providing the scholarship details to them.


Yours sincerely


Rosemary Winder
