Research Scholarship for NZLA Members

The New Zealand Literacy Association is pleased to announce a Research Scholarship for NZLA members. This scholarship is to provide financial support to a current individual member of NZLA in order to undertake research in the field of literacy.

The total value of the grant will be determined by the actual costs of the research proposal to a maximum of $5000.
