There are two rounds per year. The dates for the current round are as follows:
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 students experiencing disadvantage or isolation.
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.
Should a school be successful in their application, they can apply again once an acquittal has been completed. No applications will be considered from a school with outstanding acquittals from a previous grant round.
To find out more detailed information about the Max e-Grants programme please read our FAQs which also includes tips of how to prepare a successful application.
What is required to get a grant?
There are three stages to receiving a successful grant:
- The grant application
- The grant agreement form
- The grant aquittal form
All stages must be completed if successful.
Funding for the current round must be used on projects carried out between 6 July and 20 December 2019. It cannot be used retrospectively for projects underway or completed before 6 July 2019. If your project is scheduled for after 20 December 2019 then please wait and apply in the next round.
Assistance may be given by way of financial support based on the following categories:
- Equipment and resources (e.g. sports equipment, stationery)
- Excursions or camps (e.g. annual year camps or one off excursions)
- Extracurricular activities (e.g. club fees, swimming lessons etc.)
- Teacher support or tutoring (e.g. in class aides, external tutoring)
