Scholarship recipients - 2013

Thanks to everyone who applied for an AMP Scholarship in 2013 - we've been blown away by the incredible things Kiwis are up to around the globe, and we are incredible humbled to meet this year's recipients. 

Earlier this year, we announced our People's Choice Scholarship and AMP Regional Scholarship recipients. And now, without further ado...we're proud to announce the recipients for the AMP National, AMP Study Start and AMP People Scholarships.
