Student Assistance Fund

The Choir is fortunate in having a Student Assistance Fund that has been established through the generosity of members. The purpose of the fund is to encourage and enable students to join the choir when they are unable to afford the annual membership fee or other costs associated with membership.

A 'student' is defined as: A person, under 26 years of age, who is currently enrolled in full-time study in a tertiary institution (e.g., University, Polytechnic, Teachers' College) or a secondary institution (e.g. High School). For example, full-time study at the University of Otago is defined as 54 points or greater in any one semester or 108 points or greater in any one year.

Those who meet these criteria are eligible to have their membership fee paid in full from the Student Assistance Fund. A student wishing to apply for this assistance is invited to write to the Membership Secretary (email briefly outlining their situation and submitting proof of their level of enrollment for study. All applications will be considered by the Committee, in strict confidence.
