BP Innovation Scholarship for Young Enterprise Students

Going on to study STEM after school? Applications for the BP Innovation Scholarship programme are now open.

What is the BP 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.
