AMP regional scholarship awards were held in Invercargill last week.
The annual AMP scholarship helps fund New Zealanders with passion and determination to follow their dream, whether it’s a community project, business idea, education, or a desire to represent their country overseas.
AMP South managing director Craig Kura said nine AMP financial adviser businesses nationwide had each offered a $5000 scholarship to help someone in their region pursue their dream.
This year’s AMP regional scholarship recipient Trent Anderson received one of these scholarships to help with his dream of creating Pinpoint personal locators, designed to be affordable for the average Kiwi. While it was especially for those who loved the outdoors, it had the potential to be adapted to many other areas of everyday life, Mr Kura said.
Mr Anderson was now in the running to win the People’s Choice Award and a further $5000 to put towards his dream. For more information about the People’s Choice Award go to www.amp.co.nz/scholarships
