AMP Scholarships: People's Choice
History of award
AMP Scholarships are open to almost everyone. You just need to be a New Zealand citizen or a permanent resident. And you need a dream. It could be to do with community, sport, art, culture, education, conservation, business or anything else under the sun. AMP Scholarships aren’t bound by academic requirements or physical fitness. They’re not limited by gender, ethnicity or age. Anyone can choose to pursue their dream - the future starts today.
The People’s Choice programme is about applicants telling their friends, family and colleagues about their thing, and getting their support by asking them to vote through the People’s Choice voting site.
We're dedicated to helping people 'do their thing' - part of our commitment to growing and nurturing New Zealand communities and the talent within them.
You must ordinarily reside within your chosen region or in close proximity to your chosen region. All National and Study Start Scholarship applicants will be automatically opted-in to apply for a People’s Choice Scholarship (unless they choose to opt-out). All they need to do is select the region they live or the nearest region to where they live when they apply.

Since 1998 AMP has dedicated more than $2 million towards helping over 180 everyday Kiwis realise their dreams. Now it could be your turn.
You are not eligible to apply for any AMP Scholarship if you have previously won an AMP Scholarship of any kind before.
A judging panel in each region will select a shortlist of finalists from their regional leaderboard and those shortlisted will be invited to meet with the regional judges. One finalist in each region will be awarded a regional People’s Choice Scholarship.
Plus, a national judging panel will select a national People’s Choice scholarship recipient from those on the national leaderboard.
All People’s Choice applicants will appear on the People’s Choice voting site, where members of the public will vote for their preferred applicant. Voting opens to the public on 26 August and closes on 4 October, and a link will be supplied to all People’s Choice applicants closer to the time.
