BP Innovation Scholarship programme - Application date extended until November 27, 2019

BP has reintroduced its Innovation Scholarship programme for Year 12 and 13 students planning to begin tertiary education the following year in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). 
Innovation Scholarship launch

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.

To apply, please refer to the application criteria to assess eligibility and guidelines. The application form can be found here
