MTLT Tenant Apprentice Scholarships

MTLT Tenant Apprentice Scholarships

As part of our educational grants programme, up to six scholarships of a maximum $1,000 each will be awarded each year to assist apprentices employed by MTLT tenants.  The funds will be used to meet fees associated with apprenticeship training.

The scholarships have two main aims:

  • Encourage and support apprentices to achieve their career aspirations. 
  • Recognise the support our tenants make to employing apprentices locally, and their contribution to the community through the lease of our community-owned property. 

These scholarships recognise the contribution MTLT tenants make to employing and supporting local people in apprentice training, and their contribution to the community through the lease of community-owned property.
They are open to all apprentices employed by a MTLT tenant.  However, preference will be given to applicants who currently reside or have been educated within the Trust district.

Applications for scholarships close on 15 July and 15 February. Please email or phone us on 06 370 0155 with any questions.
