Personal Development Scholarships
With the support of the Ashburton Jaycee Education and Development Fund, Advance Ashburton offer an opportunity for young people to challenge and develop themselves by offering scholarships to help towards the costs of attending a leadership or personal development course, e.g. Outward Bound, Spirit of Adventure, or any other worthwhile course.
This is a wonderful opportunity for individuals wishing to reach their full potential through personal development, challenge and adventure. The value of the scholarship is up to $2,000 towards a suitable course of the applicant’s choice.
Applications for scholarships are now OPEN.
Ashburton Jaycee Education and Development Fund
Jaycee was an organisation for men, and in later years women, between the ages of 18 and 40. Its Four Square Badge symbolised the four tenets of the organisation - Fellowship, Action, Service and Education.
When Ashburton Jaycees wound up in 2008 they established a Special Named Fund with Advance Ashburton Community Foundation, to be used "for the development and education of persons who reside within the Ashburton District who are aged between 18 and 40".
A portion of the income from this fund is being used to support the Personal Development Scholarships.
