Established in New Zealand in 2004 at the University of Canterbury, School of Engineering

In November 2004, PSC established the “PSC Scholarship” at the University of Canterbury, School of Engineering.  The scholarship is provided in association with the Electric Power Engineering Centre (EPECentre), further enhancing the co-operation between academia and industry.

The PSC Scholarship is open to students in their 3rd professional year, who are focusing on power engineering subjects. It is awarded to an individual for showing dedication and engineering excellence; and considers academic achievement, character, potential for leadership, and contribution to the Electric Power Engineering Industry in New Zealand and social skills.

2005 was the first year that the scholarship was awarded. The scholarship has been awarded to a number of successful applicants since.
