2023/2024 Scholarship Winners
As a member of the NZ Firefighters Welfare Society you have access to 17 different Membership Benefits. One of these is the Scholarship Benefit, which pays a $500 financial contribution (per winner) towards members children’s education costs.
With living costs constantly rising, the Society is committed to easing the financial burden on firefighters and their families. Education Scholarships cover a portion education expenses, including uniforms and stationery. They can alleviate some of the stress on family budgets and allow precious household funds to be redirected to other essential needs or to savings.
The process of applying for a scholarship can also be a highly rewarding experience for children. By encouraging them to think about who inspires them and what they wish to do when they leave school, it offers valuable opportunities for creativity and personal growth.
Once per year entries are invited for the Scholarship Benefit and taking part is very easy. We simply ask for a piece of artwork or an essay about what your child would like to do when they leave school, and to tell us who inspires them.
Entries are judged in three separate age groups: 5-8, 9-12, and 13-16 and there is $1,500 in prizes to be won per region.
