Each year, NZEI Te Riu Roa offers a number of scholarships to early childhood and support staff members. In 2019, there are five scholarships of $5000 - two for early childhood members and three for support staff members.
The scholarships are set up to enhance the recipient's skills and knowledge within their workplace and in education generally, as well as to advance NZEI’s campaigns through the support staff and early childhood professional and industrial strategies.
Honours are awarded to members who have conducted themselves in ways that promote and maintain the dignity and welfare of the Institute and advanced the cause of education, reflecting their responsibility to learners and the community.
Nominations for these awards are considered by the Honours Committee and are made on behalf of the Union by National Executive. The Honours recipients are announced during the President's Dinner at Annual Conference.
