AMP scholarships

by Anonymous Author

Selwyn athletes, scientists, entrepreneurs and community volunteers are being urged to apply for an AMP Scholarship, which this year is celebrating 20 years of helping Kiwis make it happen.

Since 1998, AMP has received more than 50,000 Scholarship applications and awarded more than $2.4 million to help 300 New Zealanders, which include high achievers like Jasmine Jenke, author and Humans of South Auckland social media project founder and Frances Lloyd, World Junior Taekwondo champion.

This year, AMP is giving away up to $200,000 to help talented New Zealanders of all ages and from all walks of life to pursue their dreams. Whether it’s starting their own business, going after their sporting passion or giving back to the community, AMP wants to know about it.

AMP managing director, Blair Vernon, said 20 years of AMP Scholarships reflects the company’s deep commitment and care for New Zealand communities.

“From encouraging senior citizens to rediscover their passions, supporting researchers to find ways to improve people’s lives, getting behind athletes who want to test their limits against the best in the world or giving performing artists the chance to share their gifts on the international stage.

“We encourage anyone with a dream, big or small, to have the courage to let us help them take the next step in their journey and to apply for an AMP Scholarship today.”

Applications are open until August 13 and for more information, visit
