Closing date: 31/01/2016
Transpower Education Grants are allocated annually and applications closed on 31 January each year.
Criteria include the following
A student who:
has a proven academic ability
has shown a commitment to study
has set definite goals to achieve
may be studying Electrical Engineering
manages to successfully balance study with sport or recreation
has special circumstances
is preferably a second or third year student
In order to qualify for a grant, a student must meet the criteria of being RURAL based on the Trust's definition. The student should have determined specifically what qualification they are seeking. Preference may apply for anyone studying Electrical Engineering.
It is desirable for the student to have a proven track record and an obvious ability to be successful in the determined study area. In general, second or third year students will be preferred. First year students are often experimenting and frequently change direction.
The exception to this policy would be a first year student who has a proven academic record to achieve, but family financial circumstances are such that tertiary study is almost impossible. A person with a disability could also fall into this category.
Applications from students intending to study a course of one year’s duration may be considered.
The Trust will not provide a second Transpower Tertiary Grant to the same individual within 3 years except in exceptional circumstances.
