Student competitions and scholarships

Posted: 27 May 2020
Notice reference #: 1HA7qX

Do you have students who are thinking about a career in construction, engineering, architecture, property, urban planning, or quantity surveying?  If so, applications for a Keystone Trust scholarship open from 2 June to 14 August offering financial and industry assistance to create a successful future.

Since 1994, Keystone Trust has been offering scholarships to students with financial and circumstantial need to undertake tertiary study in property and construction-related programmes.

“For those of our students who have been fortunate enough to be selected for a Keystone Trust Scholarship, it has been truly life changing. As a school we have supported these wonderful young people, and it is so reassuring to know that we are passing them into the hands of the Keystone Trust Family, where they are mentored and guided, allowing them to realise their dreams. In our experience these students are acutely aware of the difference the Trust makes in their lives and they are keen to ‘pay it forward’, eager to help nurture others in their communities.”

Deidre Shea, Principal, Onehunga High School

Scholarships include financial assistance of $5000 pa for up to three years, mentoring and networking opportunities, introductions to our industry sponsors, workshops, site visits and internships.

“I applied for a Keystone scholarship to go to university, because I knew that it is very expensive. The scholarship also mentioned mentoring and support which I thought would be cool – but little did I know that would be the most valuable thing about Keystone Trust. Their willingness to help, mentor or just catch up for a quick coffee is amazing. The effort that goes into creating a supportive environment is invaluable”

Renee Wootton, Massey High School and Keystone Trust Alumnus 2014. Graduate Engineer with WSP, Queenstown.
