Application open til monday 10th December. 

The Rotary Club of Oamaru Trust Inc recognise the need to assist the youth of Waitaki to have the opportunity to pursue higher education and training. Consequently, we have commited funds to offer a limited number of Study Scholarships for the purposes of advancing tertiary education, vocational training or the development of life skills. 
The Scholarships are available to students from the Waitaki Region but can be utilised for study in any institution. In some cases the Scholarship may cover aspects of overseas study.
Scholarships of between $500-$1,000 will be awarded to the most deserving candidates based on a panel decision. Funds will be distributed on receipt of evidence of enrolment in study. 
The application form is here
We recommend printing the form for the purposes of considering your responses and ensuring you have all the information you need to hand. 
We will review applications and invite successful individuals to an interview. Based on the interviews, we will then award the scholarships.
  • We want to help you and we ask for all this information so we can make the best possible decision. 
  • Do not submit a sloppy application with misspellings and grammar issues. If you submit a careless application, you give us a reason not to consider you, especially if other more conscientious applicants take time to put together a well considered application. Consider asking someone to check it over for you.
  • Referees: ask people who know you and get their permission to include their names in your application. Let them know we will be contacting them to find out more about you.
  • If you need help filling out the scholarship application, ask a teacher, school counsellor, or family member to help you.
