Industry Training Scholarships

Horticulture New Zealand (HortNZ) has a number of $500 scholarships available to industry trainees active in the Horticulture Industry who are studying towards a certificate or diploma.  Applications are reviewed by a panel in April with the selection decision advised in May. 

The Selection Team will be looking for:

  • Commitment;
  • Potential contribution to the industry;
  • Past achievements;
  • Individual approach, qualities and skills; and
  • Referees’ comments. 

Selected applicants are reviewed at the end of the year to verify successful completion of their studies, where this is the case the scholarships are awarded early the following year.  The decisions of the Selection Team will be final.  Please note that these scholarships do not cover the wine industry.
