Kairuri Commuinity Trust 2022 Scholarship Applications Are Open

At the 2021 S+SNZ Annual Conference a donation of $300,000 was made to Kairūri Community Trust by the children of Ian and Margaret Stirling. The terms of the donation were to set up the Ian and Margaret Stirling Fund for the specific purpose of providing scholarships/grants to support those individuals seeking careers or further education in Survey and Spatial and particularly for those who have financial or other barriers to pursuing tertiary education including but not limited to socio-economic circumstance, ethnicity and gender.

The Trustees are delighted to announce the first two KCT Stirling Scholarships for 2022. The first - the KCT Stirling Scholarship for a final year student in a tertiary surveying or spatial course provides a cash award to assist with the completion of studies along with attendance at the S+SNZ Annual Conference in Rotorua. In keeping with the conference theme of 'Turning up the Heat' candidates are required to submit a short essay on 'Challenges for the early year survey and spatial graduate in a rapidly evolving market’ as part of their application. The successful candidate will be required to give a five minute presentation of their winning essay at the conference.

Application for the scholarship is made online from June 1st - June 30th. Visit www.kairuri.org/news-and-events for the link to the application form.
