Educational purposes

Grants for essential, safety-related or sporting equipment for educational or training organisations, including kindergartens, play centres and schools will be considered case by case.

Grants for scholarships for further education, or personal development leading to a wider community or sporting benefit, will be considered case by case.

Generally, any approved grant would be made to the education provider rather than an individual.

The following items will generally not be funded:

  • Educational resources, building projects or other items that would generally be regarded as core educational needs and the responsibility of the Ministry of Education
  • Training that will result in commercial gain or career-oriented qualifications, e.g. tertiary studies for individuals
