Education prog

As a Trust, our aim is to provide opportunities, and make education accessible to all of our owners, including tamariki, rangatahi and adults too. Over the past 22 years, we have provided our owners with funding to help them along their education journey, with our education funding programme.

We have continuously developed our education funding programme to ensure our owners are employable adults with skills that will benefit not only themselves, but the wider community.
With a recent focus on STEM subjects, we have seen many owners enter into study, pursuing careers in fields such as health, science and construction. Rather than just focusing on tertiary education, we also offer grants towards trades training, adult education, and study assistance for primary and secondary students.

We are pleased to be able to offer this support to our owners, and over the past 22 years we are proud to say we have assisted over 193 owners on their education journey, through 341 grants and scholarships, totaling $422,000.


Throughout the years of our education funding programme, we have seen owners reach their goals, learn new skills, and begin their careers. We’ve been keeping up with some of these owners in recent years, to see how their journeys are going. You can read their kōrero here.

We’re looking forward to seeing even more of our owners succeed in whatever path in life they have chosen, and we are proud to support them along the way.
