Applications are CLOSED

Applications for 2021 will open subject to Board approval, August 2020.


NWEETB has been providing funding for 20 years, for projects in Rotorua schools that address under-achievement in literacy & numeracy. 

In 2018 a joint venture between NWEETB and Rotorua Energy Trust enabled an increase in this support and we are pleased to confirm that this arrangement is continuing for the 2020 projects.


The Board has a long term commitment to addressing under-achievement in the general areas of literacy and numeracy.  Ideally for long term benefit, the thrust of support needs to be targeted at the junior levels of schooling.


Applications will be considered from schools and educational institutions in:
 - the Rotorua Education district and
 - the Township of Maketu.

Grants are NOT available to individuals


Priority will be given to schools and educational institutions that have established:
 - relevant literacy and numberacy skills programmes
 - effective learning programmes that succeed in significantly raising achievement levels of learners
-  NWEE Funding will focus on Ngati Whakaue learners at all levels of schooling, whereas Rotorua Trust will focus on all learners at Primary and Intermediate levels.

Any enquiries please refer to the Secretary's office.  


Applications open once a year, in mid-August and close in September, 1 week prior to the end of the school term 3.  Dates will be advertised in the local newspaper.

Application can only be made using the online form once open.


- Successful applicants cannot be guaranteed ongoing funding for subsequent years.
- Applications for currently funded projects may be considered for continuation, but compelling evidence of success will be required.
- The awarding of any grant is entirely at the discretion of the Board.  No correspondence will be entered into.
- Applications will clearly show the level of financial input which the organisation is prepared to provide towards meeting its share of the overall cost of the project.
Grants are paid in two instalments. The first payment is made early in the new school year; the second (after 6 months) only if the project receives a satisfactory formal appraisal carried out by the Board (or their appointed appraisers).
- Online reporting.  Two milestone reports will be required to be submitted to the Board online.  These will include budget details and pre and post testing data.  Milestone reports should reflect the development of project goals and key expected outcomes.
- The Board respect the confidential nature of all data furnished.  Data may be used for statistical/research purposes.
