Scholarships support Selwyn students into study

Selwyn District Council media release: 27th July 2022

Tertiary Scholarship applications for 2023 are now open for secondary students in Selwyn – and this year applicants can include a video submission.

Each year the Council awards scholarships to year 12 or 13 students studying in the district, with funding going towards further education for these rangitahi at a tertiary institute – often helping to pave the way for their future.

Students are encouraged to apply for the scholarship if they have achieved academic, sporting, cultural or art successes at school, in clubs or organisations, and if they have overcome any hardships or barriers.

Last year, five tertiary scholarships were awarded to young people at Darfield High School, Lincoln High School, Rolleston College and Ellesmere College.

Scholarship recipient and former Lincoln High School student, Sandra de Koning says she was grateful for the scholarship, which she put towards textbooks for her studies in Neuroscience at the University of Otago, and halls of residence accommodation.

“It was a very nice surprise, and I was extremely grateful and excited. I did not expect it at all, as the other students were very talented and all deserving of the scholarship. It was a lovely reward after a very stressful last year of high school.”

Sandra only recently became a New Zealand resident, meaning she could not qualify for a student loan.

“I worked very hard at high school, and also have been doing extracurricular activities both at school and in the community and I guess the hard work paid off.”

Find out more about the Selwyn Tertiary Scholarships, including how to apply.

Applications for the scholarships close on Friday 30th September 2022.
