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 2021 projects.

PROJECT GRANTS

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.

Eligibility

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

Priority will be given to schools and educational institutions that have established:
 - relevant literacy and numeracy 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.

- 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).
