AMP Scholarships


Turning dreams into reality since 1998

It’s no secret that Kiwis are a savvy, creative, forward-thinking and sometimes slightly wacky bunch (hey, all the best geniuses throughout history were!).  From futuristic, big ideas that could really revolutionise the way we do things, to local community heroes making a difference in the lives of others, sometimes all we need is a little help to turn the dreaming into reality.

AMP has prided itself on offering that help thanks to AMP Scholarships, now in it’s 16th year and with more than $1.8 million awarded across the country.

AMP Scholarships is on the search again for Kiwis with the passion and determination to make their mark on the world and who could use some help doing ‘great things’.  Applications open this week.

Whether it’s you or someone you know that’s doing something great, AMP Scholarships is open to all New Zealanders, of all age groups, walks of life and from a diverse range of fields. 

Perhaps you’re on the brink of a great idea for a sustainable future?  Maybe you’ve got a flair for fashion and a sketchbook full of amazing designs you’re ready to take to the next level? Or could you be a visionary filmmaker, bringing stories of inspiration to life?  From mountain bikers and boxers to ballerinas and bio-scientists - whatever your calling, all you need is passion, talent and determination.

With a scholarship pool of more than $200,000 spanning across five different categories, including AMP Regional Scholarships where generous AMP Adviser Businesses make a solid investment in their local talent, AMP is making it possible to support even more deserving Kiwis to do their thing!

2013 Applications for AMP Scholarships open on July 15th – August 31st

Final Call For Entries, Closing 31 August

Do you dream of making a difference? Have you thought you can offer more to the world if only you had a little help? Now’s your chance!

An AMP Scholarship can give you the leg up you need to set you on the path to success in whatever field you’ve chosen – whether that’s mathematics or machinery, architecture or apps – and there’s no need to be an ‘A’ student or even a student at all - you only need to demonstrate your passion and determination (and a New Zealand resident).

Previous recipients have included environmentalists, authors, pianists, scientists, racecar drivers, entrepreneurs, sportspeople, dog trainers and shoe designers. You’re only limited by your imagination and will to succeed.

There are a number of different scholarships available: AMP National Scholarships, AMP Regional Scholarships, AMP Study Start Scholarship and a People’s Choice Scholarship.
