Thirty-seven high school students heading to study at Waikato University and Wintec have received $5000 toward their studies in the latest round of scholarships from the David Johnstone Charitable Trust.

The trust, worth $5.2 million, was created by the late Mr Johnston who, while a leading light in the farming field never had the benefit of a tertiary education after leaving school at an early age to help run the family farm after the death of his father.
