The Acorn Foundation Walters Family Scholarship

Acorn —

Tauranga Girls’ College and the Acorn Foundation invite applications from students to apply for a Scholarship, from a fund of up to $2000.

The intention of this scholarship is to provide a financial contribution to a student(s) to pursue travel as part of their personal growth and impact for their life experiences, that they otherwise may not be in a position financially to do.

Ideally, the scholarship will be awarded to a Year 11-12 student(s) who has demonstrated commitment to the school’s values (manaakitanga, mahi tahi and mana motuhake), can demonstrate financial need and a commitment to funding a proportion of the trip themselves, who have had limited travel experience, and upon return will ‘give back‘ to the College by way of service and leadership. This year, the travel will be within New Zealand.

Due to the current COVID-19 considerations, the scholarship could also be awarded for equipment and/or devices for students who have a proven talent and strong work ethic, but whose families are struggling to be able to afford the equipment needed for them to pursue their ambitions. This might particularly be applied to families where employment/businesses have been adversely affected due to COVID-19.

For further details, an Application Form may be collected from the Student Office.

Applications close Friday 12 March 2021.
