Recognising
& Rewarding
Extraordinary
Young Individuals

The Inspire Foundation is unique in New Zealand and is a registered charity dedicated to supporting Marlborough's young talent

what if

we could recognise extraordinary young individuals who have the potential and desire to achieve excellence in their chosen field, and reward them in such a way as to help them realise it. That would be an inspired choice.

The Inspire Foundation has been set up as a charitable trust to recognise and reward extraordinary, talented young individuals.

To qualify, applicants must be aged between 15 and 23 years of age (inclusive as at the 31st January of the applicable year), a resident of Marlborough for at least 3 years with New Zealand Citizenship and have demonstrated extraordinary ability or potential in any of the areas of Arts, IT, Design, Music, Science, Research, Education, Sport or Community Service.

Assistance comes in the form of grants to fund the widest possible array of requests - such as travel, courses, tuition, equipment, projects or initiatives.

It's all about making inspired choices for the future of the Canterbury and Marlborough regions.
