Future Leader Scholarship

Interested in developing your leadership skills? Think about going for one of our Future Leader Scholarships.

The Programme

There are five components to the Future Leader Scholarship programme.


These include attending weekly hui, joining or establishing clubs and committees, working on group projects, taking part in the Lend a Hand charity project, and assisting the University with marketing and recruitment events. 


The components cater to your individual interests, push you outside your comfort zone, create personal growth, help you to develop relationships with a greater range of people and inspire you to show imagination; after all, leaders have vision.


As leadership cannot simply be taught from a textbook, the five components have various purposes, all designed to help you develop into an effective leader.


The Future Leader Scholarship Programme aims to:


  • Support and develop leadership in students who are actively contributing to the University and the wider community
  • Produce well-rounded, open-minded, conscious leaders 
  • Expose you to a way of thinking rather than simply providing you with a collection of generic tools 
  • Provide you with opportunities to practise relevant and applied leadership principles.

The Five Components


Weekly hui

Compulsory weekly hui are held during universal free time (UFT) so that all scholars can attend, and are run by an elected Future Leader executive. The meetings include both student and industry presentations, workshops, guest speakers, 'ah-ha' moments, and year group updates.


Clubs and committees

Being involved in a campus club or committee helps you to understand how an organisation runs and gives you professional experience, networking contacts, and an insight into organisational culture and politics.  


You can choose a club or committee that you have a genuine interest in. If nothing takes your fancy, start your own club.  Future Leader Scholars have been responsible for starting several clubs on campus, including Lincoln Ladies, hunting, diving, food appreciation, Spin a Yarn, and the volunteer society, as well as being drivers in already established clubs such as Young Farmers, sports council, Christian fellowship, wine appreciation, halls committee, soils society, and campus ambassadors.


Group projects

You will work in a group of five or six, with a third year scholar as group leader. This is an excellent opportunity for the group leader to put into practice the skills they have learnt on the programme. Groups are asked to be “initiators” or “early adopters” and think outside the square. Here are some of our recent projects: 


Mission Malawi 

First there was Mission Tonga, which involved a group of Future Leaders raising funds to go to Tonga to help the Mango Tree School for the Disabled build raised gardens so the children in wheelchairs could tend to their crops.  Now it’s off to Malawi to build a classroom at an orphanage in Mohatikiza.


Fuel for Life

This group of scholars were horrified to learn about the number of children who go to school hungry right here in Christchurch. Realising that this is a huge social issue to combat, they decided to do what they could and every Tuesday morning, with the generous support of Lincoln Hospitality, they  make breakfast for the children at Rowley Avenue School. They have also created a cookbook of healthy, low-cost, easy-to-prepare breakfasts and hosted an information session for parents at the school. They are currently looking to expand. 


Rainforest Connection

Rainforest Connection is a US-based charity which sets up communication systems in endangered rainforests around the world to prevent illegal logging.  Rainforest Connection takes old, unused smartphones and rewires them to detect the noise of chainsaws. Once noise is detected, a message is sent to the nearest ranger who can go and stop the logging from taking place. We have set up a collection base here in Lincoln where people can donate their old smartphones so that Rainforest Connection can continue their work to save more of the earth’s rainforests.


Primary IQ

Not all students who come to Lincoln University to study agricultural-based degrees are from a rural background. Some have a limited knowledge of the sector. Primary IQ helps to bridge the gap of knowledge and skills between the urban and rural students by running workshops with professionals from all areas of the sector, including Young Farmers representatives, vets, Beef and Lamb and DairyNZ.  We are also creating a handy booklet of agricultural terminology…do you know what a two-tooth is?


Lend a Hand

Lend a Hand was established amidst the Canterbury earthquakes in 2011 as a way of helping out our community when it was in desperate need. Lend a Hand is now an annual charity project and so far, more than $80,000 has been raised and 700 + hours of “peoplepower” have been put into assisting charities and our community. Lend a Hand is a fourth year run project but all Future Leaders have a part to play in its success. Lend a Hand also ties in with the underlying principle of the programme, which is to serve first. See our Handy Landys website for our 2016 Lend a Hand project, which is now a club on campus.

Marketing and Recruitment

As a fantastic ambassador for the University, you will be required to assist at marketing and recruitment events throughout the year. This can include, but is not limited to, Open Day, school visits, secondary school leadership and outreach days, and the Christchurch Careers Expo.
