Applications for the Prime Minister's Athletes Scholarships are now open.
The Prime Minister's Scholarship Programme helps athletes pursue tertiary study and sport at the same time.
The programme also helps athletes gain educational qualifications to prepare them for their lives after sport. It was established in 2000 and is administered by High Performance Sport New Zealand on behalf of the Government.
All current High Performance squad members (both open and development) are eligible to apply.
