Project Grants

Applications are now Closed
(Closed 22nd SEPTEMBER 2017)

At the discretion of the Board, applications for 2019 project grants will open August 2018
Application must be made using the online form - see link below.
Current project holders please use login button below to enter your existing profile to access the form.
The Board has a long term commitment to addressing under-achievement in the general areas of literacy and numeracy.  Ideally for long term benefit, the thrust of support needs to be targeted at the junior levels of schooling.


Applications will be considered from schools and educational institutions in:
 - the Rotorua Education district and
 - the Township of Maketu.

Grants are NOT available to individuals


Priority will be given to schools and educational institutions that have established:
 - relevant literacy and numberacy skills programmes
 - effective learning programmes that suceed in significantly raising achievement levels of learners
 - significant numbers of Ngati Whakaue students to be targeted (.e.g. schools with low decile ratings   and/or large proportion of Maori).

Applications open once a year, in mid-August and close in September, 1 week prior to the end of the school term 3.  Dates will be advertised in the local newspaper.

Application can only be made using the online form once open.


- Successful applicants cannot be guaranteed ongoing funding for subsequent years.
- Applications for currently funded projects may be considered for continuation, but compelling evidence of success will be required.
- The awariding of any grant is entirely at the discretion of the Board.  No correspondence will be entered into.
- Applications will clearly show the level of financial input which the organisation is prepared to provide towards meeting its share of the overall cost of the project.
- Grants are paid in two instalments. The first payment is made early in the new school year; the second (after 6 months) only if the project receives a satisfactory formal appraisal carried out by the Board (or their appointed appraisers).
- Online reporting.  Two milestone reports will be submitted to the Board online.  These will include budget details and pre and post testing data.  Milestone reports should reflect the development of project goals and key expected outcomes.
- The Board respect the confidential nature of all data furnished.  Data may be used for statistical/research purposes.
