About Eva Trowbridge

Eva Trowbridge was a quiet, unassuming woman who led a humble life working for 25 years as a cleaner at Tauranga Hospital.

Before her death in 2006, Eva Trowbridge set up an endowment fund with the Acorn Foundation, which provides an annual scholarship for an adult student at the University of Waikato's Tauranga Campus.

Since then, 15 local women have been awarded the $3,000 Eva Trowbridge Scholarship, supporting them to graduate and give back to community in a range of professions. *This amount has been increased to $5,000 from 2022.
