    About the scholarships SDC awards annually to pupils in local high schools

Selwyn District Council makes a considerable contribution to the social fabric of the community via a range of community grants, scholarships and in-kind support. Having a Community Funding & Grants Programme is an explicit acknowledgement by Selwyn District Council that achieving positive wellbeing outcomes for community cannot be achieved by Council alone.

All funds & grants that are made available will be reviewed and considered during the Long Terms Plan and Annual Plan process and may not automatically be renewed.

For advice with regards to which fund is best is suited for your project or general enquiries you can contact the Council or our Selwyn Community Fund team via email selwyncommunityfund@selwyn.govt.nz directly.
