Our Scholarship Programme

Each year the Riccarton Rotary Youth Trust offers a scholarship to enable a student to attend either the University of Canterbury, Lincoln University or the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology. The objective of the Scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a student who is experiencing severe financial pressure or personal circumstances which might otherwise prevent further tertiary study. The award recognises that some young people of enormous potential are prevented from obtaining higher qualifications.

The Scholarship is managed by the Scholarships Office of the University of Canterbury with the applications required to be lodged by 15th August for the following year’s award. The websites of the two Universities and CPIT will provide application forms prior to the date.
