Applications for the CORE Education Travel Scholarship are now open.

About CORE's Travel Scholarship

The CORE Education Travel Scholarship recognises New Zealand teachers' contributions to educational thinking, by awarding a travel grant to attend an international educational event. The Scholarship is open to all New Zealand teachers in state or private, ECE, Primary or Secondary settings.

The scholarship will cover the cost of attending and presenting at an international educational event up to the value of NZ$5000. The scholarship includes travel expenses, accommodation expenses and registration for the event.

To enter, teachers must produce and submit a thought-provoking piece, demonstrating their contribution to educational thought. This perspective can take any form, but should relate to CORE's Ten Trends, which focus on ten major ICT trends forecasted to impact on education in the following year.

Charitable purpose of CORE's Foundation

CORE Education is a not-for-profit professional development and research organisation that supports the Travel Scholarship as part of its charitable purpose. Chief Executive Ali Hughes says that the Scholarships reflect CORE’s charitable purposes. “It’s important to us to return investment into the wider education sector, to stimulate and support best practice and new educational development," she says.


Applications can be made online.

Applications close on Thursday 10th January 2013.
