Sport Manawatu in association with local businesses is pleased to offer part tertiary or trade scholarships to the value of $1,500 each to individuals who excel at sport.
1.Applicants must be elite athletes moving into their first year of tertiary or trade apprenticeship study at a tertiary institution or a recognised trade industry within the Sport Manawatu 'region' (Horowhenua, Tararua and Manawatu districts and Palmerston North City).
2.The scholarship is open to local athletes (those who live in the 'region' and have attended secondary school in the 'region') however special considerations apply for the following circumstances:
"Students leaving secondary schools that are not within the Sport Manawatu 'region' but are from the following schools; Otaki College, Rangitikei College, Nga Tawa and Turakina Maori Girls' College;
"The intended course of study is not available locally (refer 'Conditions' - point 3).
3.Athletes must display the potential to compete in the sporting arena at a provincial, national or international level now or in the foreseeable future.
1.The athlete must commit to study of up to three (3) years full time or equivalent. Three years being the length of the scholarship term, exceptions may be granted to this timeframe where international commitments have caused inability to complete study over this period.
2.Scholarships will be reviewed annually, with payment of tertiary course fees the primary purpose. The scholarship will be paid in a lump sum once proof of acceptance into the tertiary or trade course is received by the athlete and shown to Sport Manawatu.
Note: Recipients of the Prime Minister's Scholarship can negotiate how the scholarship is used.
3.Athletes will be selected based on their past and current sporting involvement and success. Future sporting potential will be a major consideration, along with an athlete's commitment to the 'region'.
4.Athletes need to submit an application form to be eligible and may be interviewed in the selection process.
5.Not all unsuccessful applicants will be placed on a waiting list for scholarship support. Should an athlete withdraw from tertiary study or apprenticeship, a scholarship will be offered to a waiting list athlete where appropriate.
6.Athletes will be required to sign an agreement that will outline the details of the scholarship and the commitment to Sport Manawatu (such as, role model work, coaching sessions) and local sport (playing in a local competition and available for local representative teams except where the sport is not offered in the 'region').
7.Athletes withdrawing from a course during any year of study will be required to pay back the current year's scholarship payment in cash or in-kind.
8.For athletes entering their second or subsequent year of study, information on academic and sporting performance is expected. The intention is to continue the scholarship for the maximum three (3) year study period unless there is cause not to (see Condition 1).
9.Athletes can receive help in completing the application and should include supporting letters from their national or provincial sports body and other key organisations. Applications will not be received from an organisation on an athlete's behalf.
10.Sport Manawatu reserves the right to accept and decline an application without explanation.
11.The athlete has no claim against Sport Manawatu for the provision of the scholarship or any portion of the scholarship, nor shall such persons be under any liability or obligation to provide funding to the athlete.
