Scholarship Presented by The Governor-General Hon Anand Satyanand

13 May 2008

Freemasons New Zealand has provided scholarships totaling $3,000,000 to nearly 850 students

at Auckland,  AUT, Waikato, Massey,  Victoria, Canterbury,  Lincoln and Otago  universities, over

31  years,  making  The  Freemasons  Charity  one  of  the  country’s  largest,  privately  funded

university scholarship programmes.

Marking the 31st year of Freemasons’ benevolence in New Zealand university scholarships, His

Excellency,  The  Governor-General,  Hon  Anand  Satyanand,  today  presented  35  students  with

scholarships  totaling  $238,000  at  Government  House  in  Wellington.  Twenty-eight  graduate

students  each  received  $6,000  and  seven  post-graduate  students  each  received  a  $10,000

scholarship.

Grand  Master,  MWBro  Barry  McLaggan,  says  a  recent  major  revamp  of  the  scholarship

programme  has  increased  the  value  of  the  scholarships  offered  and  altered  the  application

criteria.

“While applicants must be A grade students completing their degrees, they must also take part

in a non-academic community activity.

“Today Freemasons have helped young New Zealanders towards careers as varied as aerospace

design  -  earthquake  proofing  existing  structures  -  assisting  adolescent  patients  with  eating

disorders - taxonomy research to improve biosecurity - to name but a few.

“Our  scholarship  recipients  are  all  high-achieving  young  people  who  recognise  the  importance  and  involvement  of  community  service  as  well  as

academic success.

“For Freemasons, to give is to receive. We come from all walks of life but are in agreement that education is pivotal to the success of young people and

their on-going contribution to society. To reward excellence in education is an investment in New Zealand’s future”, says Barry McLaggan.
