THE Poverty Bay Agricultural and Pastoral (A&P) Association has proudly launched a scholarship that aims to assist a student enrolled in a fulltime programme related to the primary industries, at a university or tertiary institute in New Zealand.

An invitation has now been extended for applications.

The scholarship recipient will receive $2000 payable towards their course costs and accommodation.

A&P Association president Norm Thomas said the launch of this scholarship was the result of ongoing hard work by the dedicated executive team overlooking the organisation.

“With better financial results we are able to put these initiatives in place to give back to our community.

“Our purpose or mission statement is to be an innovative and significant contributor to the promotion and development of land-based industries in the Tairawhiti region.

“This scholarship meets that purpose,” Mr Thomas said.

“The recipient will be from the Gisborne or East Coast region and will wish to be involved in the primary-based industry be it agriculture, horticulture, forestry or fishing.”

He said the criteria for selection will be based on leadership potential, academic merit and commitment to the industry.

“It is hoped the scholarship recipient will ultimately seek employment in Poverty Bay and pass on the benefits of their learning to the Poverty Bay community and its industries,” Mr Thomas said.

The scholarship will be awarded by a Selection Panel of members comprising a representative from the Poverty Bay A&P Association, and a recognised person from the primary industries community.

If you are planning studies related to the primary industries, this a great opportunity to have a portion of your course costs subsidised — so apply now.

Application forms will be available from the A&P Office at Showgrounds Park or through the association website – www.gisborneshow.co.nz.

All applications must be received by the Poverty Bay A&P Association by November 30.
