The North Harbour Business Association has launched a business studies scholarship in partnership with Rangitoto College, which established a School of Business programme for its years 12 & 13 students this year.
The scholarship is open to year 13 students who’ve been at the school since year 9 and intend studying full -time the next year for a bachelor of business studies degree at Massey University’s Albany campus. Business association general manager Gary Holmes said it wasn’t specifically aimed at top achievers or those from the lowest socio-economic band.
Up to 6 students will be selected as finalists and each will be paired with a North Harbour business leader who will act as mentor. Mentors will be in regular contact with their assigned students throughout the scholarship programme and provide practical support.
The scholarship will provide practical support for senior Rangitoto College pupils throughout their Business School studies, and one student/year will have their course fee met for each year of their 3-year degree course.
The first 6 finalists are Michael Wiehaln, Nick Lattimore, Matt Jillings, Saskia Fandam, Michael Philips & Josh Storey. The 6 sponsor/mentor companies are Sealegs International Ltd, Roofing Industries Ltd, Link Plas Ltd, Speedy Signs (NZ) Ltd, Actionmail Ltd & Rad9 Computer Services.
