The Omokoroa & Districts Lions Club is calling for applications for two tertiary scholarships to be awarded in 2020. The first award is the Beryl Scott Tertiary Memorial Scholarship, which will be for $2,000 for the 2020 year. The second award, the Precious Family Memorial Scholarship, will be granted following the same criteria but for $1,500.
Applications are sought from tertiary students who have completed at least one year’s study in subjects of their choice, at the institution of their choice, and who intend to continue their studies in their chosen field. The awards are offered to youth of Omokoroa who have been residents of the area comprising the Omokoroa Peninsula, Plummers Point, Whakamarama, Pahoia and Esdaile Road (up to and including Tim Road, but not Wainui South Road) for three years and have attended a local secondary school for at least three years.
Requests for application forms must be made by 7 December 2019 with completed applications required by 14 December 2019. Please contact Christine Robertson on 021658444 or preferably email firstname.lastname@example.org. Late applications will NOT be considered.
A Selection Committee will review the applications, interview selected candidates on Saturday 18 January 2020, determine the recipients, notify the winners, etc. If a large field applies then a smaller group will be selected for interview.
If you know of a student eligible for these awards please let them know about this scholarship opportunity.
