The William Georgetti Scholarships

The purpose of the William Georgetti Scholarship is to encourage postgraduate study and research, normally in New Zealand, in a field that in the opinion of the Scholarship Board is important to the social, cultural or economic development of New Zealand.

This scholarship was established from the Estate of William Georgetti who passed away on 7 Feb 1943.  During his lifetime Mr Georgetti farmed an extensive property at Fernhill, near Hastings. 

Mr Georgetti believed that "whatever fluctuations there may be in prices for primary produce and in land values and whatever vicissitudes the said Dominion may pass through farming land will always be the most stable asset in which to invest money". 

Scholarship value

In New Zealand up to $20,000 per year for Masters study and $30,000 per year for doctoral study. For those students studying overseas, the award can be up to $NZ45,000 per year. Have a look at the overview of the estimated costs of living in the Netherlands (excluding tuition fees).

Scholars are expected to commence their postgraduate programme by 1 November in the year the scholarship is awarded.

The term of each William Georgetti scholarship is up to three years; the Selection Board has discretion to vary the term of a scholarship.

The number of scholarships awarded in any year is determined by the Selection Committee.

Country of Origin
