The College and Health Workforce New Zealand offer a number of Grants to assist midwives with their study and clinical experience.

Undergraduate Student Grants

A number of grants are available from The New Zealand College of Midwives to assist midwifery students in Bachelor of Midwifery programmes.

Postgraduate Study Grant Opportunities

Midwives who are engaged in formal postgraduate education (at Level 8 or above on the NZQA framework) are entitled to apply for a grant towards the cost of their postgraduate study. These grants are funded by Health Workforce New Zealand (HWNZ) and are administered by the College to subsidise the cost of fees and travel.

Complex Care midwifery postgraduate education support

Complex care midwifery education is postgraduate level study which enables midwives to develop their clinical skills in specific areas of practice, relevant to their current work setting, or possible future areas of practice. It is formal postgraduate education which requires attendance at academic lectures, assignments and course work as well as clinical placements.

Rural midwifery student grant

Mary Garlick, a retired long standing rural midwife has generously granted a sum of money to the New Zealand College of Midwives to administer as an annual grant for midwifery students who intend to practise rurally on graduation.

The NZ Nurses Memorial Fund

This fund is available to Nurses and Midwives, practicing or retired, who have completed two years of employment since registration in NZ.
