Community Organisation Study Award

The Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology Community Organisation Study Awards are intended for adult learners who are currently working in a not-for-profit organisation. Any community organisation can nominate a staff member for an award (one award per organisation).

This award is only open to New Zealand citizens and permanent residents who are enrolling in a full-time Toi Ohomai course.


In all cases, the award will be pending the individual meeting, the course entry criteria and being accepted onto their intended study course.

Applicants must provide evidence to demonstrate a focused intention to succeed within their chosen subject area.

Consideration will also be given to the applicant’s personal and financial circumstances.
