Overview:

FMG has its roots firmly planted in rural New Zealand, which is why you’ll find that we're different when it comes to insurance. We were started in 1905 by farmers for farmers and today we’re still 100% New Zealand owned by our rural clients. 

Giving rural New Zealand a better deal is our core purpose and we live by an advice-led approach to help you identify and avoid interruptions to your farm, business and in your personal life.   

Each year we help two promising agriculture students starting their first year at university. We'll put $5000 towards your course fees for each year of your undergraduate degree at Lincoln, Massey or Waikato Universities.

The scholarship amount of $5000.00 per annum will be paid for three consecutive years, subject to all terms being met.  For undergraduate degrees that are equivalent to four years full-time study, this may, at FMG’s sole discretion, be extended to a maximum of four consecutive years.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
