Education Grants 2023

Hineuru Iwi Trust and the Hineuru Education and Training Committee are pleased to announce that applications for the 2023 Education Grants are now OPEN. Applications are open from 1 April to 12 PM 30 April 2023. This year, the opening of applications was delayed due to Cyclone Gabrielle.

HIT and the Committee understand that sometimes the pursuit of education can be a difficult and financially burdensome task. The Grants Scheme is a way that the Trust can contribute to the development of iwi members’ education while providing flexibility in how the allocated grant is spent.

Last year 114 iwi members benefited from the Education Grants. The Trust looks forward to receiving a similar or greater number of applications.

The Committee has appointed Maria Rahui as the Grants Administrator for this year. As such, she will be available to provide support to applicants. You can make contact via email: or phone: 027 318 9344
