Each year we help two promising agriculture students starting their first year at university. We'll put $5,000 towards your course fees for each year of your undergraduate degree at Lincoln, Massey or Waikato Universities.

The FMG Agriculture Scholarship* is open to students who can maintain at least a B- average and are planning to begin their first year of study towards a Bachelor of:

  • Agriculture
  • Agricultural Science
  • Commerce (Agriculture)
  • Viticulture and Oenology
  • AgriScience
  • AgriCommerce
  • Science (Agriculture or AgriTech)
  • Management Studies (Agribusiness)
  • Agribusiness and Food Marketing
  • Land and Property Management (Rural)
  • Veterinary Science

Please note the scholarship only covers the study programmes above. If you’ve previously completed another degree you can still apply provided you are beginning the first year of one of the above degrees.

*Terms and conditions apply.


How to apply

All applications must be nominated by an FMG client. Talk to agribusinesses in your area to see if they are insured with FMG – as we’re New Zealand’s largest rural insurer, it won’t take long to find one! You can also drop into your local FMG office if you need help.

Applications can be made online or by post. If you submit your application online you’ll see a page confirming it was successfully submitted. If you post your application allow up to 10 working days for it to be processed, we’ll then call or email you to confirm we’ve received it.

If you already have a scholarship, that shouldn’t stop you applying. The only time it’s likely to affect your eligibility for FMG’s scholarship is if the other scholarship pays most of your tuition fees.

Applications open each year on 1 October and close on 5 December. Check back on this page for the application form during this period.
