Awards


We are offering a range of awards again in 2019
 
New Horizons for Women Trust: Hine Kahukura provides awards that benefit women and/or girls. Each year the Trust provides a number of second-chance education, research and specific purpose awards.
 
Sponsors and donors make it possible to acknowledge women with awards each year. Some organisations fund-raise throughout the year to finance awards, some individuals put their hands in their pockets to sponsor an award and other Trusts give money for the specific purpose of supporting women's education. The rest of the awards are funded from donations and bequests made to NHWT:HK over the years. 
 
Different sponsored awards can be restricted or give preference to applicants from a specific region, women who are older or who are studying a subject where women are under represented. Have a look at the awards on offer in 2019 and consider making an application in March. You can apply for more than one type of award if you meet the eligibility criteria for each, but only one award will be given to a successful applicant.
 
Applications are now closed  and will open on Friday 1 March 2019 for six weeks, closing Sunday 14 April 2019. Scroll down further to see the awards available this year.

Please contact us at enquiries@newhorizonsforwomen.org.nz  with any queries you may have.
