Nuffield 2020 Scholar programme update

Following the COVID-19 lockdowns this year and restrictions on international and national travel, we have had to continually adapt the 2020 Scholarship Programme.

Travel for our scholars (for their national focus programme) has been deferred. The 2020 Scholars will now join with the 2021 scholar cohort in February/March next year to embark on a road trip around New Zealand to assist with their Nuffield research.

For the remainder of this year the 2020 Scholars’ focus will be on conducting a survey on the sector impacts of COVID-19. Scholars will be supported with a monthly zoom session with selected speakers.

This will be followed by a Scholar retreat in October 2020 to spend time going through reflective practice and also taking in some strategic organisations.

Lastly, they will present their findings in November at the Nuffield 2021 Awards in Wellington.

    75% refund
  • Cancellation within 7 days of course start: 
    No refund
