Awards and Funding

The New Zealand National Commission of UNESCO provides funding for projects, events, programmes or initiatives that reflect our mission; “The promotion of peace and social justice in NZ and the Pacific through Education, the Sciences, Culture, and the free exchange of ideas.”

We also promote opportunities for New Zealanders to participate in and benefit from UNESCO international and regional programmes and activities, such as nominating New Zealanders for UNESCO prizes, enabling New Zealanders to apply for UNESCO fellowships and participation by New Zealand experts in UNESCO meetings.
