Open to students from the Marlborough region (either attending secondary school, or resident in), intending to study agriculture or environmental management at Lincoln University.
Ten scholarships, each valued at $6,000, are available for scholars for one year. Scholarship holders may reapply in subsequent years.
The scholarship recipient will demonstrate an intention to work in the agriculture, food and fibre sectors on completion of their study.
This scholarship was established by Lincoln University in 2020, in recognition of Mr Gordon Holmes’ contribution to farming and education, particularly that relevant to the Marlborough region. It is named in recognition of Argyle Farm (formally owned by Mr Holmes), a 433 hectare sheep and cattle property in the Wairau Valley, at the junction of the Wairau and Branch Rivers and 63 kilometres west of Blenheim.
