Roger Bartley Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship has been established by King’s College, in conjunction with the family of the late Dr Roger Bartley and the Rotary Club of Otahuhu. It commemorates Dr Bartley’s selfless service to the community and his strong association with both the College — as a student, school doctor, parent and grandparent; and with the Rotary Club of Otahuhu — as a member and President. The intention is to grow the fund so that from 2014 it can endow a scholarship for a promising all-round student who would benefit from an education at King’s College. Preference will be given for a student who is a resident of South Auckland and who would not be able to attend the College without the support of the scholarship.Download a Roger Bartley Memorial aplication form
