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.

Past A&P Society Scholarship recipients include:

  • Rupert Powers
  • Zoe McNeilly
  • Gina Hore
  • Megan Robertson
  • Ayla Meikle
  • William Gibson
  • Mary Hewitt
  • Brooke Dickey
  • Eachann Bruce
  • Alannah Stalker
  • Lachlan Woods
