Teaching awards and scholarships

Posted: 21 December 2020
Notice reference #: 1HAFmW

Are you a primary or intermediate teacher interested in environmental education? 

The Young Ocean Explorers’ Scholarship could fully fund your Master of Education thesis starting in Semester One 2021. Your thesis will be focused on researching a new environmental education programme for primary students (the 21 Day Challenge), which looks for ways to restore the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park.

This scholarship is funded by Young Ocean Explorers, an organisation dedicated to inspiring primary school children to love and care for our oceans through educational resources.

The scholarship will support you to complete either a 90 or 120-point master thesis as part of the Master of Education programme.

Applications close on Monday 25 January.
