Align Scholarships

At Align, we’re committed to building the next generation of farmers. The Align Farms Agriculture Scholarship is part of that commitment.

The scholarship pays for one year’s worth of tuition fees, up to the value of $5,000. After their year of study, the recipient will be offered a paid summer internship on one of our farms, in the area they’re most interested in. And when roles become available at Align farms, past scholarship recipients will be given first priority.

Who is eligible and when can you apply?

  • Full time undergraduate students at a New Zealand University (who won’t be receiving the government’s first year fee-free scheme in the year following the awarding of the scholarship)

  • Students enrolled in a Food and Fibre-related undergraduate programme in New Zealand

  • Domestic or International students

  • Children of Align employees will be given first priority

  • Applications are welcome any time but applications for the year close October 1st

  • The recipient will be chosen on November 1st and the scholarship will begin the following February

  • Applications for the 2024 school year are now closed, any applications will be considered for 2025
