You may be eligible for a scholarship or grant!

Do you or a member of your family need help searching for information on scholarships or grants?

A FREE BreakOut Workshop is being held at the Hastings Library on Tuesday 25 September, 5.30-6.30pm.

The Funding Information Service ‘BreakOut’ database provides access to frequently updated information on scholarships, awards and grants.

Paula Murdoch, District Libraries manager, says the searchable database will help individuals looking for funding for support during study, sport or professional development opportunities. ”Funding these activities can be beyond the means of some people and many are not aware of the scholarships and grants available.”

“Now is the time many of us are thinking about finding money to pay the fees for our children’s tuition or other study costs next year. Our libraries provide free access to this funding information and it is important the community knows what is available.”

“Trained library staff will give an overview of the BreakOut database and show people how they can use it to search for funding sources relevant to their situation”, Paula says.

Of the 3,788 awards, scholarships and grants listed in BreakOut, 2,129 are currently open for application.

“While not all of these are going to be suitable, you won’t know what is available until you look,” Mrs Murdoch says, “Our trained staff can show you how to do this efficiently.”

Eligibility criteria, closing dates, application requirements, contact details and guidelines for applying for funding are listed in the BreakOut database.

For more information on the upcoming workshop, contact Fiona or Sheryl at the Hastings Library on 8715180.

Gordon Campbell: On How Climate Change Threatens Cricket‘s Future

Well that didn’t last long, did it? Mere days after taking on what he called the “awesome responsibility” of being Prime Minister, Christopher Luxon has started blaming everyone else and complaining that he's inherited “economic vandalism on an unprecedented scale” - which is how most of us would describe his own coalition agreements, 100-Day Plan, and backdated $3 billion handout to landlords...

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
