Scholarships and Grants

The Nursing Education and Research Foundation (NERF) and NZNO offer NZNO members a range of scholarships and grants. These grants are funded from various trusts including the Gretta and Harry Hamblin Trust and the McCutchan Trust. NZNO also administers a range of other NZNO local and national grants.

NERF's mission is to promote excellence in nursing and health care by providing funding opportunities for education and research. 

Scholarships and grants are only available to current NZNO members.

(Except the McCutchan Trust Scholarship - please see the specific criteria for this scholarship).
