The annual scholarships, worth a thousand dollars each, will be awarded to six students to help with tuition costs during their first year of study at IPU New Zealand.
The Council funded scholarships are designed to encourage students to choose Palmerston North as their overseas study destination.
The students will be required to help out during major cultural events including IPU New Zealand's Spring Festival and the city’s Festival of Cultures. They’ll also need to share their experiences of Palmerston North on social media.
The agreement was signed at IPU New Zealand's annual International Spring Festival in September, which celebrates the diversity of cultures at IPU New Zealand and gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful cherry trees blossoming on the campus.
