Student competitions and scholarships New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 17 June 2021
Notice reference #: 1HAM46

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 1 June to 13 August and may provide them with the financial and industry assistance to create a successful future.

For the past 27 years, 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. 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. We cannot thank the Keystone Trust enough.”

Deidre Shea, Principal, Onehunga High School

Scholarships include financial assistance of $5,000 pa for up to a period of 3 years, mentoring and networking opportunities, introductions to our industry sponsors, workshops, site visits and internships.

“I applied for a Keystone scholarship as I wanted to go to university, but 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”
