In 1981, to celebrate the School’s 75th Jubilee and to mark the appointment of Old Boy Sir David Beattie as Governor General of New Zealand, the Trust Board established a fund to produce income to assist Old Boys in furthering their education. These are prestigious awards and are limited to 2 or 3 Old Boys per year.


Applicants must be former pupils of Dilworth and must:

  • Be involved in tertiary level study towards a degree or diploma and/or
  • Have some worthwhile project in mind which will in some way benefit the community in which the applicant lives.
  • As there is already a Dilworth Trust Board Tertiary Support Scheme in place, preference for the awarding of a David Stuart Beattie Scholarship is given to Old Boys who are involved in post-graduate work, or whose particular course of study is out of the ordinary in terms of cost.

Applications for The David Stuart Beattie Awards must be submitted on the application form supplied. Completed applications must be received by 5.00pm, Friday 22nd February 2013. Applicants will be advised of the outcomes prior to Founder’s Assembly, Friday 8 March 2013.

Any queries should be directed to Ms Claudine Nathan, Assistant Principal – Student Services, Private Bag 28-904, Remuera, Auckland 1541. The contact telephone number is (09) 5223759. Email: c.nathan@dilworth.school.nz
