Applications are open for the Council’s annual Tertiary Education Scholarships, supporting Selwyn young people who are leaving school and heading into higher education or training next year.

Scholarships of up to $3000 provide payment towards fees, and costs associated with buying books and equipment required for their study or training.

The scholarships are available for year 12 and 13 students who live and study in Selwyn and are planning to undertake full-time post-secondary school education or training at a recognised New Zealand university, polytechnic or training institution next year.

Applications are encouraged from students who have achieved outstanding success in academic, sports, cultural, arts, social responsibility or other areas, either at school or in their community. Those who have overcome barriers or hardships to achieve are encouraged to apply.

Applications are open until the end of September.

For the first time this year, young people will have the option to make a video submission talking about their passion and goals.
