The Lower Hutt Primary Science Mayoral Scholarship* is designed to support Lower Hutt primary schools who have at least one teacher enrolled in the Open Polytechnic’s Graduate Certificate in Primary Science Teaching (Curriculum).
One scholarship is available for each school in Lower Hutt, each year which has a teacher enrolled in the above qualification. Schools who have applied in previous years may apply again.
Once the enrolment and scholarship application are approved, schools will receive a $2,500 grant which can be used for the reimbursement of teacher course fees, teacher release/time release or science resources, at their discretion.
Contact the Student Advisor, School of Science,Technology and Engineering at Open Polytechnic to have an enrolment application form sent to you, or to find out more information.
To be eligible for the scholarship you will also need to provide a letter of support from your Principal. This letter must be attached to the enrolment application form for the Graduate Certificate in Primary Science Teaching (Curriculum).
