If you exhibit leadership capabilities, excel academically, and have achieved in sport, or creative or performing arts, you might be eligible to apply for the Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship programme.
Applications for the Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship programme in 2022 are now open. The closing date is 31st August 2021. Apply Now!
The Tania Dalton Foundation, created in honour of the sporting legend whose presence would fill the room, has been established to make a meaningful impact on the lives of budding young kiwis, guiding them to lead their biggest life – as Tania did.
The scholarships aims to provide support to young women from all kinds of circumstances and at different stages of their development, to unlock their talent and enable them to live their biggest life with sport as their guide.
Included in the criteria is the ability to demonstrate a significant level of financial and/or circumstantial hardship. Hockey has yet to have a young female granted a TDF Scholarship so it would be great to see this change!
