Prime Minister's Athlete Scholarships

Prime Minister's Scholarships support athletes, coaches, support team members and officials to gain educational or professional qualifications while continuing in sport.

Prime Minister’s Athlete Scholarships allow athletes to undertake tertiary study and vocational qualifications while pursuing elite level sport at the same time. The scholarship scheme also helps retiring athletes move smoothly into another career once their sporting careers are over.

The purpose of the Athlete Scholarship Programme is to invest in educational opportunities that enable world leading performances from New Zealand’s top athletic talent, by assisting athletes to develop holistically outside sport in ways that contribute towards their post-athletic career and enable the sustainability of our athlete talent pool.
