ANZEA is pleased to open the scholarship application process for ANZEA’s 2024 Conference.  

This year we hope to be able to fully or partially fund at least 20 conference scholarships (10 international and 10 local).

Sponsorship categories:

  • Māori delegates
  • Pacific delegates
  • New settler/migrant delegates
  • Full-time tertiary student delegates (university, polytechnic and wānanga)
  • People working in community-based organisations (Not-for-profit and NGOs)
  • Unwaged delegates

 

Applications close midnight, SUNDAY July 7th 2024

For any questions regarding the scholarship application process, please contact conference@anzea.org.nz in the first instance

Types of scholarships

This year, to maximise the opportunity for our colleagues both here and across our region, we will be offering a mixture of full and partial scholarships, the value of which will differ depending on whether the recipient's place of residence is domestic or international.

Please note none of the scholarship categories include pre- or post-conference workshop attendance. HOWEVER, the conference committee reserves the right to offer scholarship recipients the opportunity to attend pre- or post-conference workshops. This will be wholly dependent on sponsorship commitments to this opportunity.

Successful applicants will be refunded for their scholarship value amount after the conference, and only on submission of travel and accommodation receipts. Refunds are expected to take from 15 - 25 days to process, depending on correct submission of documents/receipts. The conference committee may consider payment before the conference.

 

Partial scholarships - Domestic and/or international

Will provide conference registration and a ticket to the conference dinner. 

Please note partial scholarships do not include any travel, accommodation, or other conference related expenses.

  • a LUMP SUM of 1500 to cover travel or accommodation or other conference related expenses. All travel and accommodation arrangements must be made by the scholarship recipient themselves

Before you start, please make sure you have a signed endorsement letter.

Please apply via this online form and email your signed letter endorsing your eligibility under the category you are applying to conference@anzea.co.nz . You may wish to download a copy of the application (attached at the bottom of this page) to draft your responses. If you have difficulties accessing the online form you can still apply via emailing conference@anzea.co.nz using the word document, however we request applicants try the online form in the first instance.

  • For community-based participants, a letter or email of endorsement from a Manager (or similar) of the organisation you will be representing, verifying that you are representing that organisation.
