Upper Clutha A&P Society Scholarship
Each year, the Upper Clutha A&P Society awards a total of $3000 for its Scholarship.
The scholarship is designed to provide financial assistance to people wanting to further their education in the field of agriculture. Three successful applicants get $1000 each. It doesn’t have to be for farmers wanting to study Agriculture at university – students who love entering the Wanaka A&P Show’s home industry competitions or aspiring photographers who love taking rural photos could potentially apply.
The idea is that by offering money towards study, the Upper Clutha A&P Society hopes that recipients eventually return to the Wanaka A&P Show and help contribute towards the Show’s future by sharing their skills, or contributing to the A&P movement in general. All applicants must be members or children of members of the Upper Clutha A&P Society.
Applications close on November 30 each year, with successful recipients notified by the end of December each year.
