Financial support for intermediate and secondary school students who have been selected on a national basis to attend international science and technology events.
The Talented School Students Travel Award is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and administered by the Royal Society Te Apārangi.
The funding will assist talented school students to represent New Zealand at internationally recognised overseas science, mathematics or technology events.
Students apply and are considered by a national selection process for the award, which is to help cover their direct costs of travel.
Students who are selected then formally request funding to cover their travel costs.
Applications are closed for the annual national selection round managed by Royal Society Te Apārangi but selected students and students selected by other organisations can formally request funding.
