Ballance Scholarships

Each year we offer up to four scholarships to provide a financial boost to students wanting to help shape the future of New Zealand's agricultural sector.


Ballance Agri-Nutrients offers up to four scholarships each year to offer a financial boost to students who want to help shape the future of one of New Zealand’s most important and profitable sectors – agriculture.  Each scholarship is valued at $4,000 a year and can be held for up to three years. The awards are made to subsidise study at a tertiary level in either the general primary industry, general management or business related fields, or engineering.

Scholarship applications are open to all New Zealand secondary school and tertiary students, with two scholarships a year on offer for family members of Ballance shareholders and two for the wider community.

There is a wealth of opportunities, not just on farms and in farm advisory roles, but across many professions from food science through to patent law, accounting and chemical engineering. The Ballance scholarship programme aims to attract and support talented and curious minds from a range of fields of study so our agribusiness sector continues to lead the world in best practice and innovation.

Scholarship applications are now open until October 31, 2017.
