Each year, a number of Templin scholarship Programme are available. The scholarship is available for graduates of Canterbury University and Lincoln University who wish to pursue research, higher studies or advanced practical experience in Engineering or in Horticulture in the United States. Only British or New Zealand nationals are welcome to apply.
The Templin scholarship is one of the most lucrative and well supported post graduate scholarships in engineering and horticulture given in New Zealand: it covers tuition costs and the reasonable costs of travel, accommodation and related living expenses for the duration of the study period. The funds for this scholarship are provided by a trust, established by the late John Richard Templin, a graduate of Ohio State University and for many years a Consulting Engineer in Christchurch, who died in 1961. The trustee is Perpetual Guardian which is the trading name of The New Zealand Guardian Trust Co. Ltd.
