2019 TeachNZ Scholarship Programme

Teaching awards and scholarships New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 12 September 2018
Notice reference #: 1H9kdw

The full 2019 TeachNZ Scholarship programme is open from 17 September.

Students will be able to apply for a range of scholarships that can support their pathway to teaching.

The application opening, closing and notification schedule has been reshaped, to allow students a greater opportunity to apply for the scholarships that can assist their studies at a time that best suits their plans.

Applications for every scholarship available will open and close at the same time. There will be three application rounds throughout the year.                                                                                         

Applicants can apply for multiple scholarships, but can only be granted one. 

Applicants do not need to be enrolled in an approved teaching programme when applying for a scholarship, unless they are applying for a Kupe Scholarship.

The dates for the rounds are detailed below.
