The purpose of each scholarship is to encourage people domiciled in Hawke’s Bay to  undertake further education or

training in Horticulture (related to Pipfruit, Summerfruit & Kiwifruit) through University, Polytechnic or other NZQA accredited courses.  It is hoped that scholarship recipients will ultimately seek employment in Hawke’s Bay and pass on the benefits of their learning to the Hawke’s Bay community and its industries.


The number of scholarships awarded will be decided by the Trustees.


The value of each Scholarship is at the discretion of the Trustees. 


  • Term of the scholarships: one year.
  • Applicants may be required to attend an interview. 
  • Decisions made by the Trustees are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
  • The closing date for applications is 1st November.
