Like thousands of other students around New Zealand, Bianca Green of Masterton is, this week, sorting through mountains of gear she has hauled down to Dunedin and settling into university halls of residence.
The training and career plans of three local apprentices have been given a boost after being awarded Masterton Trust Lands Trust (MTLT) Tenant Apprentice Scholarships recently.
The scholarships are available to apprentices working for tenants of MTLT to assist them with industry training fees. Worth up to $1000 each, the scholarships are part of the Trust’s education grants programme.
Former Chanel College dux Abigail Murcott has been awarded Masterton Trust Lands Trust’s 2019 Alan MacDiarmid scholarship to help with her study towards a Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) degree at the University of Auckland. The scholarship will provide Ms Murcott with a $1,000 grant each year for three years; support the former Masterton student says will make a big difference to her studies.
