Bursaries and Scholarships

The following forms of Government assistance are available for New Zealand residents and are worth looking into when applying for a place with InZone for your child.

School Boarding Bursaries

These bursaries are for primary and secondary students. Eligibility is determined by the distance the pupil lives from the nearest state school or school bus stop (3.2km or more for a child under 10 years, or 4.8km or more for a child who is 10 years or over).

Boarding bursaries may also be awarded to assist students who are seriously at risk in their emotional, social or emotional development because of continuing, unsatisfactory features in their home or social environment.

When a student who is eligible for one of the first two categories of bursary described above lives within a reasonable travelling distance of a school offering the required course, they may receive transport assistance in lieu of a bursary. Students who are eligible for a bursary because they are at risk and need to live away from home, or who are eligible under the distance criteria, may not receive transport assistance in lieu.

The Government has decided to discontinue the Maori and Polynesian Scholarships as the eligibility criteria for the scholarships are very similar to the Government Boarding Bursary criteria. This means that most students who would otherwise have applied for a Maori and Polynesian secondary (distance) scholarship will be eligible for a boarding bursary.
