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 (if required).

Midwives who are planning to enrol, or have enrolled, in postgraduate study in 2021 are now eligible to apply. Please note that application for funding is a separate process to academic enrolment. Midwives need to approach the tertiary education providers directly to enrol with them, and need evidence of enrolment or initiating the enrolment process to support their application for a grant. Enrolment deadlines vary between education providers and will differ from the grant application deadline.
