The Diana and Colin Crombie Scholarship Fund
Named after its founders, Napier philanthropists, Diana and Colin Crombie, the fund is the former Penzance Charitable Trust, which has provided local secondary-school students with scholarships for the past 15 years.
The Diana and Colin Crombie Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to students from Napier Boys’ High School and Napier Girls’ High School who are going on to any kind of tertiary education.
This year two successful applicants will receive a total of $9,000 each, given out over the course of three years.
Applications for the Crombie Scholarship 2023 are now closed.
Barry Family and BEL Group Tertiary Study Grant
The Barry Family and BEL Group are offering up to $5,000 as a Tertiary Study Grant. This grant is available to any BEL Group employees or their family members who are planning to pursue studies in 2024.
This grant is flexible and can be used for various study-related purposes such as tuition fees, course-related expenses, travel, living costs or accommodation while studying away from home. The best part? It’s a grant, meaning there’s no need to repay the funds.
Applications for the Barry Family and BEL Group Tertiary Study Grant are now closed.
The France Trust Scholarship Fund
Hawke’s Bay Foundation is pleased to offer three new scholarships, thank you to the Trustees of the France Trust, Patrick Gallagher, Michael Waite and Robbie Hunt.
Robert France, of Napier, passed away unmarried and with no children in 1887. He left his Coote Road property to his sister, but the remainder of his estate was put into a Trust to benefit local children, particularly with their education.
For 135 years, the various Trustees of the France Trust have been faithful to Mr France’s wishes and worked hard to support our rangatahi. This year they have decided to set up a formal scholarship through Hawke’s Bay Foundation, for one student from each of 3 schools – Wairoa College, Lindisfarne College and Taradale High School.
The scholarship is open to all Year 13 students from these schools going on to tertiary education. It is worth $2,500 annually for 3 years, making it one of the largest private scholarships in Hawke’s Bay.
Applications for the France Trust Scholarship 2023 are now closed.

Applicants must be:
- From Hawke’s Bay
- Attending Lincoln University in 2024
