Scholarships


A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education. Scholarships are awarded based upon various criteria, which usually reflect the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award. Scholarship money is not required to be repaid.

FRASER FARM SCHOLARSHIPS:

Two scholarships to the value of $4000 each are being offered to incoming Waitaki Boys’ High School pupils. They will be given to boys who would board in the school hostel.
The scholarships will be awarded to boys who are starting as year 9 pupils. They are bestowed in memory of the late Trevor Meikle, a past pupil and retired farmer who worked as a volunteer to reinstate the school’s Fraser Farm.
Waitaki Boys’ is the only school in the South Island with its own farm, and one of only four in New Zealand. It has a 16ha farm on the school site.
A small team of retired farmers are helping agricultural studies pupils with hands-on lessons such as weighing and drenching livestock, feed budgeting, shearing, and handling farm machinery for example.
