Closing date: 31/12/2020   

Focus
Agriculture and Horticulture.

Level of Study
Postgraduate.

Purpose
The Farmers’ Union Scholarship supports full-time postgraduate degree and diploma students in disciplines relevant to agriculture and horticulture.

Background
This scholarship arises from a donation by Sir James Wilson, the first president of the Farmers’ Union (1902 to 1920), now Federated Farmers of New Zealand.

Value and Tenure
The value is determined each year from the interest earned on the capital. In recent years this has been $2,000.
At the discretion of the University all, or part, of the annual interest may be reinvested to maintain the value of the capital fund so the scholarship may not be granted each and every year.
The scholarship is usually offered annually and the tenure is for a single academic year.

Typical Number on Offer
Typically, up to two scholarships will be awarded per year.

Eligibility
Applicants must be graduates of any New Zealand university who are enrolled full time in a postgraduate degree or a postgraduate diploma in Applied Academic Programme disciplines relevant to agriculture or horticulture (paper prefix of 111, 112, 117, 119, 138, 171, 188, 189, 238 and 239) at Massey University.

Selection Criteria
The selection criterion is academic merit.
Other scholarships and bursaries may be taken into account in seeking an equitable distribution of funds.

Selection Committee
The scholarship is awarded by the University Scholarships Committee on the recommendation of the Applied Academic Programmes Scholarships Committee, College of Sciences.
The University Scholarships Committee has the right to refrain from making an award if there are no suitable applicants and its decision is final.

Conditions of the Scholarship
The scholarship may be held in conjunction with other scholarships, bursaries or awards, so long as those scholarships, bursaries or awards permit co-tenure.
The Applied Academic Programmes Scholarships Committee may withdraw or suspend an award at any time if the recipient fails to make satisfactory academic progress.
