David from Rangiora

Rotary Club of Rangiora
Charitable Trust


The Rotary Club of Rangiora awards a grant each year in memory of a former member, Alex Murray, to assist a young person about to leave school to undertake further training at an education centre, polytechnic or university.

The grant, to a value of $5000, will be awarded to a young person living in either the Waimakariri or Hurunui Districts. The grant is to assist with course costs and/or study materials (excluding accommodation costs) over the first two years of tertiary study.

We are calling for applications for this grant for study to be commenced in 2022.

The application form may be obtained by emailing ayers.david@xtra.co.nz.

Applications will close on Thursday 18th November 2021.
