Te Kotahitanga is offering four types of grants to our members:

NOTE: If originals are submitted they will be returned ONLY if a self-addressed envelope is included with the application.
For more information and to download the application and If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the office at 06 758 4685.
The application form is available to be downloaded online.
An unsuccessful application for an Undergraduate or a Postgraduate grant will automatically be assessed for a Tertiary grant. This does not mean the applicant will be successful for a Tertiary grant, but rather that it will be considered alongside all other Tertiary grant applicants.
It is recommended that you register with Te Atiawa now and consider applying again next year.
A part-time student is eligible to apply for a Tertiary, Undergraduate or Postgraduate grant, but if successful will only receive 50% of the grant value.
