Students encouraged to apply for scholarship
27 July 2022
School leavers from around the King Country and Central Plateau are being encouraged to apply for a scholarship to help pay their study fees.
In August, The Lines Company (TLC) fifth round of its TLC Inspiring Local Minds Scholarship programme will open to school leavers who live or have gone to school locally. Three scholarships of $2000 for each year of study are available, for a maximum of three years.
Applications open on August 1, with application forms are available online at thelinescompany.co.nz and from high schools throughout the King Country and Central Plateau. The scholarships are not just focused on academic achievement. They are designed to provide financial support to rangatahi who have the right attitude, share TLC values, and want to bring their newly learned skills home to the King Country region.
As well as financial support, the TLC Inspiring Local Minds Scholarship could provide recipients with mentoring or work experience opportunities during holidays.
Scholarship applications close on Friday, August 31. All short-listed applicants will attend a face-to-face interview during September with a selection panel. Three scholarship winners will be announced later this year.
