WHAT SCHOLARSHIP?

There are a few different scholarships which may apply to your situation. Once you've submitted your application, we'll be able to decide the type of scholarship best suited to you. Some of the reasons a scholarship can be offered:

  • Your family can’t afford this, but it’s exactly what you need

  • Your family/you can pay for some of the cost, but you need help funding the rest

  • You've worked hard at school or at home and you think you've earned a space on Spirit of New Zealand

  • You’re from an awesome region of Aotearoa that we have special funding for - current regions we have funding available for is listed on our application form

  • You offer diversity that will enrich the voyage for all - see application form for current diversity funding we have available.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Here’s some of the questions we’ll ask and things you’ll need to apply:

  • Are you applying for full or part funding?

  • Have you or will you be doing any fundraising of your own?

  • Who is endorsing your application – name, phone and email (not a family member)

  • A letter or email from the person supporting your application (this could be a
    teacher, kaumatua, employer, community leader

  • To have a parent/guardian sign your application

All you need to do is create a profile and when you get the funding part of the journey follow the link to apply for a scholarship.
