Mazzetta Scholarship

The Mazzetta Company Scholarship Fund is a trust for the advancement of education.

Scholarships aim to support registered Ngāi Tahu whānau and other Māori in their career development in the fishing and or seafood industry. This includes but is not limited to commercial fishing and processing, marine biology, aquaculture, marine science, sea fisheries and freshwater fisheries.

To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants must:

  • be seeking to advance their education in fishing, preferably in areas related to commercial fishing and processing;
  • complete the application form with all relevant information and supporting documents.

Supporting Documents:
