The Lawson Robinson Hawke’s Bay Scholarship aims to recognise outstanding academic and leadership qualities in a student currently enrolled in a full time land based production industries programme at a New Zealand University.


The Hawke’s Bay A&P Society invites you to enter the 2017 Lawson Robinson Hawke’s Bay Scholarship.
