Barbara Wood Memorial Foundation Scholarship
The Foundation was established to commemorate the life and work of the late Barbara Wood MBE, the Dominion President of the NZ Federation of Country Women's Institutes 1970-1974, the South Pacific Area Vice-President of the Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW) from 1975-1977 and the Deputy World President of the same organisation between 1977-1979. Mrs Wood died tragically in the Mt Erebus air disaster.
The Foundation offers financial assistance to provide training opportunities for students in New Zealand and the South Pacific region.
The scholarships are available to tertiary students, both female and male, who were born in the South Pacific region which not only includes the island nations of the Pacific, but also New Zealand, and Australia.
Students born in the South Pacific wishing to study in New Zealand or anywhere in the South Pacific are eligible for the scholarship.
Recipients that are successful in any one year can apply again in any subsequent year.
