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 awards. These awards are made possible by the generous sponsorship and donations from organisations and individuals.
Foundation Certificate and Diploma Studies Second-Chance Education Awards are for women who are engaging in tertiary education for the FIRST TIME, at either a Foundation Certificate level (NZQA level 3-4) or Diploma level (NZQA level 5-6), who do not already have a tertiary qualification at that level, and have not previously received a NHWTHK award. The awards are a one off grant to help with study and/or living expenses.
