Ngā Pūtea Āwhina Scholarships


He waka eke noa - a canoe on which all can embark

We think it’s important to make our events accessible to anyone who wants to come. By providing scholarship places for our conference, we hope to include people from a range of backgrounds who can bring unique perspectives to this event.

You do not need to be a SCANZ member to apply for a scholarship.

To apply, please tell us in less than 400 words:

  • how you’re involved in science communication,

  • how attending the conference would benefit you,

  • how your unique life experiences would help bring a different perspective to the conference.

Applications close at 12 noon on Rāmere 1 Whiringa-ā-Rangi, Fri 1 November 2019.

The awardees will receive complimentary rēhitatanga registration for the entire SCANZ conference (including hākari dinner on 28th), plus up to $600 towards hāereere travel and wāhi noho accommodation.

We will also partner awardees with a SCANZ member as a ‘connector’ - to help facilitate whakawhanaungatanga networking. We recognise that not everyone are extroverts!

We can cater for a broad range of accessibility and dietary needs - just let us know.

If you are an individual or business who would like to sponsor a scholarship place, please email us.
