Max e-Grants Appliction Process 2020-21 

Who is eligible to apply?

The Max e-Grants programme provides small grants of up to $5,000 to Ministry of Education licensed New Zealand schools and pre-schools to support children aged 4-18 years to achieve educational participation. The aim of the programme is to support individual children or small groups of children so they won't feel isolated or left out of activities due to social or economic disadvantage beyond their control.

Each school is asked to limit their applications to ONE (1) per Grant Round. If a school lodges two applications, it is unlikely that more than one application per school will be granted.

There are only two rounds per year.

Should a school be successful in their application in one round they will not be able to apply in the round immediately following.

All successful applications must complete an acquittal form.

We strongly encourage you to read through all the FAQs to help with the success of your application.
