Gardiner Dairy Foundation Open 2022 Tertiary Scholarships

Students from South West dairy communities who plan to start their tertiary studies in 2022 can now apply for a Gardiner Dairy Foundation scholarship.

Gardiner Dairy Foundation is offering seven tertiary scholarships to students starting full-time study in 2022. Each scholarship offers $10,000 a year for up to three years of a scholar’s chosen university or TAFE course.

The tertiary scholarships are named in recognition of services to the dairy industry by Niel Black, Shirley Harlock, Jakob Malmo, Bill Pyle and Doug Weir.

Gardiner CEO, Dr Clive Noble, said the scholarships are aimed at students who want to pursue a career that will directly benefit the dairy industry or dairy communities.

“These scholarships invest in the education and training of young people from dairy communities who have the potential to contribute to a vibrant dairy industry and to dairy communities in the future"

“We encourage students to return to dairy regions with their tertiary qualifications to share their new skills,” Dr Noble said.

“The scholarships help to overcome the financial disadvantage faced by rural students living away from home to study.”

Veterinary graduate Mitchell Dodds received the Jakob Malmo Gardiner Foundation Tertiary Scholarship in 2014 and is now a practicing vet.

“From a financial point of view, the Gardiner Dairy Foundation Tertiary Scholarship enabled me to really focus on my degree,” Mitchell said. “It’s difficult to work while studying veterinary medicine when you have 50 contact hours a week in the first two years of study.”

To be eligible, students must start their first year of full-time tertiary study in 2022 and due to study commitments need to relocate from home.

To be successful, applicants will need to demonstrate intended future contributions to the dairy industry and communities as well as describe their community involvement and academic achievements to date.
