George Feilding Hight Scholarship

In 2013, George Feilding Hight and Merrilyn Estelle Hight established a scholarship fund in the St Andrew’s College Foundation, to provide scholarships for young men and women from rural communities in the South Island of New Zealand, to attend St Andrew’s.

Applicants for the George Feilding Hight Scholarships have parents or guardians receiving the major part of their income from the pastoral and horticultural industries, or from employment in the agricultural services sector. The applicants must demonstrate how financial constraints would preclude their ability to meet tuition fees. In addition the applicants must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Rector of St Andrew's College that they have a particular interest in or aptitude for academic studies.

Only New Zealand citizens or permanent residents can apply for a George Feilding Hight Scholarship, which are awarded at the discretion of the Rector.

St Andrew’s College is proud to offer this exciting opportunity for young rural men and women to reach their full potential in a dynamic learning environment.
