HASANZ Scholarships 2023

The 2023 round of HASANZ Scholarships applications are open until Sunday, 10 September 2023.

HASANZ welcomes applications from people already working in health and safety or those who want to move into a career in health and safety. Successful candidates could receive up to $10,000* over two years to put towards tertiary study in health and safety. They also receive mentoring and practical experience, including field day and networking opportunities with industry representatives.

This year, we will be offering four scholarship categories:

  • HASANZ General: for practitioners and health and safety representatives who want to upskill to a diploma or degree, as well as people wanting to specialise in health and safety by undertaking a bachelors degree or postgraduate qualification at a university. (Funded by business sponsors listed at the bottom of this page.)

  • Poutama: for Māori health and safety practitioners who want to take their skills to the next level. (Funded by business sponsors listed at the bottom of this page.)

  • Women in Safety: for female health and safety practitioners who are ready to upskill from a technical level into leadership and governance to influence health and safety leadership and governance practice in New Zealand. (Funded by business sponsors listed at the bottom of this page.)

  • Occupational Hygiene: for people wanting to become an Occupational Hygienist or to do further training in this field. (Funded by WorkSafe.)

To apply, simply fill out an application form in the desired category (right-hand side of this page) and provide all required information by 10 September 2023.
