Holcim New Zealand has built on the success of educational scholarships it has offered in the Buller area for around 30 years. Since 2009 we have extended scholarship opportunities to several other communities in which we operate. For 2019, we will be offering scholarships in the following communities.

  • Buller district

  • Timaru district

  • Napier/Hastings

In each of these communities a Holcim scholarship will be made available offering $2,000 per annum (maximum 3 years) towards tertiary study costs.


Scholarship criteria

  • Applicants with a connection to these communities were preferred (eg. born, attended school, parents/ family living in the area).

  • Preference is often given to applicants whose tertiary studies are relevant to Holcim (eg. science, mining, engineering, logistics).

Scholarship timeline

  • Applications for 2019 scholarships open on 1 September 2018.

  • Applications close on 1 October 2018.

Scholarship Application Form

  • All applications must be completed on a Scholarship application form. An updated form will be available on 31 August 2018.


Scholars may be named on our website, in publications, and/or in related publicity.
