Individual Grants to support Wakatipu Youth

Scholarships are a wonderful way to support Wakatipu Youth who are already showing talent in their chosen field, or who may need a hand up to enable them to shine. It is a way for an individual, organisation or a community group to support future leaders, and grow a stronger community.  Scholarships can help grow diversity, skills, leadership, community wellbeing and culture.

The Wakatipu Community Foundation is well placed to manage your scholarship programme.  Funds are professionally managed and invested as per our Trust Deed and financial reporting requirements are already in place. We currently administer a number of scholarships, and would like to grow this to offer a broad range of support to our youth.
