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.
