Funding Your Masters
Join our online sessions

Don’t let money be the barrier to your learning journey. If you’re ready to join our innovative and practical programme, we want to help you fund your Master of Contemporary Education. Our online sessions will showcase funding options, demystify the TeachNZ study awards and give you practical advice about preparing your application.

Tuesday 17th May, 7:00pm-8:00pm and 
Tuesday 31st May, 7:00pm-8:00pm

Is money holding you back from learning?

At The Mind Lab, it’s our goal to ensure learning is accessible for all and that’s why we put so much emphasis on helping our learners to fund their Masters. There are many ways to seek full or partial funding for education so through these two online sessions we’ll cover what the options are and then give you practical guidance and advice if you choose to apply for funding.

We ran these sessions in 2020 and 2021 and a number of attendees were successful in their applications and our now leading the way in their education context.

These events will be hosted on Zoom so you can join from wherever you are in Aotearoa. 

What we'll cover

Part 2: Tuesday 31st May, 7:00pm-8:00pm

This second session will focus more practically on the application requirements for the TeachNZ awards. Our seasoned experts will share their insights, advice and answer any questions you have as you are preparing your application. We’ll also hear from educators who had successful applications and what their experience was like. Bring along your questions or your half-finished application and together we’ll make it the best it can be.
