The BP Innovation Scholarship programme has been created in celebration of the 25-year partnership between BP and Young Enterprise. The annual scholarship programme will see 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 in 2019.
The purpose of the scheme is to give back, and to inspire and support New Zealand’s future innovative leaders to make the most of the opportunities before them.
Applications for this year's scholarships are now open and close on 30 November 2018.
Any Year 12 or 13 student who has participated in a BP Business Challenge or Young Enterprise programme may apply. 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 pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects next year. Applications will be assessed on their demonstration of drive and passion to innovate.
