Innovation Scholarship launch
BP and Young Enterprise launch Innovation Scholarship programme
The BP Innovation Scholarship programme was created in celebration of the 25-year partnership between BP and Young Enterprise in 2018. The annual scholarship programme sees five students who have participated in a Young Enterprise-led programme awarded $1,000 each to go towards study-related costs for their first year of tertiary education.
The purpose of the scheme is to give back, inspire and support New Zealand’s future innovative leaders to make the most of the opportunities before them.
BP is proud to have partnered with Young Enterprise since 1993, and wholly supports their purpose to foster leadership, develop entrepreneurial skills, and build innovative minds for the future. BP’s hope is that the BP Innovation Scholarship programme will encourage and enable students with a passion for innovation to go after their dreams and big ideas.
BP is looking for New Zealand students who are passionate about being an ambassador for change and innovation. Applicants must be a New Zealand citizen, and be going on to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects the following year. Applicants will be assessed on their demonstration of drive and passion to innovate.
