Awarded on behalf of the Acorn Foundation

This scholarship has been set up to enable a young creative to undertake further study in the creative arts.

This annual award valued at $2,000 is for someone undertaking or about to commence further study in preparation for a career in the creative arts. Managed by the Creative Bay of Plenty on behalf of the Acorn Foundation, applications open 1 July and close 31 August each year.

Acorn Foundation is a charitable trust operating in Tauranga, New Zealand. It was established in 2003, to encourage people to consider leaving a gift in their will to benefit the western Bay of Plenty community forever. People can also make gifts during their lifetime to build up their fund and maximise the tax rebates now available.
