The Harwood Farm Trust was established by Miss Myra Annie Zita Arnaboldi by way of a Deed of Trust dated 9 November, 1981.
The objects of the Trust include the training and education of young people in farming. All types of farming are envisaged, together with on and off the job training and the provision of scholarships and prizes for the benefit of youth attending educational institutions in New Zealand which undertake agricultural courses.
The aim of the Trustees is to make several grants available. Each grant will have a value of between $500 and $2,000 (the exact amount to be determined in each case by the Trustees in their absolute discretion).
The Trustees consider 5 scholarship applications on an annual basis. Applications for the 2015 year should be made by Friday 28th November 2014. Applicants will be advised of the result of their application by Friday 19th December 2014.
The Trustees assess applications based on the information provided by the applicant and their referees. It is therefore important that applicants complete their applications as fully and accurately as possible and provide a CV with their application. Applicants should consider whether they meet the criteria to qualify for support before submitting their application. Evidence demonstrating eligibility should be provided with the application.
