Grab a scholarship and get qualified for a rewarding food and fibre career.

People with qualifications are in demand to meet the growing need for design, technology and science expertise in the food and fibre sectors.

Whether you're leaving school to study or changing your career, you should be able to find a scholarship to help you get qualified. Scholarships can help you with money towards related course fees or living costs.

Growing NZ scholarship tool

Growing NZ has an easy to use tool that helps you match a scholarship with who you are, where you live and what you're studying. 

You can find scholarships for studying at a polytechnic or university, or for completing an apprenticeship – there are even ones for summer internships. 

The tool has a database of scholarships for every level of study, from a Level 4 certificate to a PhD. 

More scholarship options

There are a number of websites and organisations that provide scholarships to people studying for food and fibre careers.

Once you've found a scholarship, try our tips on how to fill out the application.

Get free fees for your food and fibre study

Don't forget to apply for free fees for your food and fibre qualification.

The fees-free initiative is not just for school leavers, it's for career changers too.
