The George Feilding Hight Scholarship
George Feilding Hight and Merrilyn Estelle Hight established in 2013 a scholarship fund in the St Andrew’s College Foundation which will provide scholarships for young men and women from the rural communities of the South Island of New Zealand to attend St Andrew’s College, Christchurch.
The George Feilding Hight Scholarships are for the benefit of students who live in rural areas of the South Island of New Zealand whose parents or guardians receive the major part of their income from the pastoral and horticultural industries or who are employed in the agricultural services sector who in the opinion of the Rector of St Andrew’s College would be precluded from attending the College because of financial constraints. Recipients of the George Feilding Hight Scholarships must be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents.
In addition the recipient(s) must have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Rector of St Andrew's College that they have a particular interest in or aptitude for academic studies.
By offering a suitable student the diverse opportunities provided by a St Andrew's College education, the George Feilding Hight Scholarships will give young men and women the chance to reach their full potential and so benefit the greater community.
