Russell Education Trust

The Russell Education Trust was established in 2000 by the late Phillip Forbes Morrow of Dunedin with the specific purpose of providing assistance for Foreign and New Zealand Students studying at the University of Otago, or the Otago Polytechnic who the Trustees from time to time deem to be politically, financially or educationally disadvantaged.     Individual grants of up to $2500 are available to successful applicants. Expressions of interest are invited from students who believe they may qualify for a grant under the terms of the Trust.     Such expressions of interest should include the following:   particulars of the applicant's personal circumstances; course of study; reasons for qualification; academic record; and references.     For further details and enquiries please call Kate Mackersy at Mitchell Mackersy on (03) 450 9540¬†or email Kate at
