ACG Founders Scholarships
The ACG Founders Scholarship honours a group of people whose vision, expertise and dedication led to the establishment of the Senior College of New Zealand in 1995. Since 2018, one scholarship has been awarded annually. The recipient must be a student who is currently studying at an ACG secondary school in New Zealand and plans to start a university programme the following year.
The Founders Scholarship may be held in conjunction with other awards. It recognises outstanding academic ability, as well as personal qualities for future success, such as integrity, leadership, boldness of vision, exceptional drive, energy, and a capacity for hard work. Alex Pentchev, the inaugural recipient of the ACG Founders Scholarship, graduated in 2018. He is now studying medicine at the University of Sydney and aspires to work in medical research. Alex states:
“The scholarship has opened up fantastic opportunities such as semester exchanges with universities all around the world. I no longer have to worry about finances and I can focus solely on my studies, which has been extremely helpful during the stressful transition to university. All around, it feels as if a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I now have the ability to do anything I want in education without worrying about money.”
