The term of each William Georgetti Scholarship is up to three years. The Selection Board has discretion to vary the term of a scholarship.|
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, 'Crissoge'. He 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'.
The purpose of the William Georgetti Scholarships is to encourage postgraduate study and research, in New Zealand or overseas, in a field that in the opinion of the Scholarship Board is important to the social, cultural or economic development of New Zealand.
From the eligible and complete applications the Scholarship Board will short list a number of candidates who will be invited to a personal interview in Wellington. In exceptional circumstances a telephone interview may be held. No scholarship will be awarded without an interview. The interviews will normally be held in April/May each year.
