The 2023 round of HASANZ Scholarships applications are now closed.
HASANZ welcomed 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.)
All applicants will be advised of their individual outcomes by late November 2023. The names of all successful recipients will be announced in early December 2023.
All enquiries should be directed to [email protected]
*Scholarship value may vary at HASANZ's discretion.
We have compiled a handy guide of tertiary courses offered in workplace health and safety in New Zealand and Australia. The intent of this list is to provide a helpful starting point for those looking for available courses. However, applications to study other tertiary qualifications in workplace health and safety that aren’t featured on this list, are also accepted.
Before applying for a HASANZ Scholarship, we recommend that you read the FAQs and Terms and Conditions of the Scholarships.
