Awards and Funding

The New Zealand National Commission of UNESCO provides funding for projects, events, programmes or initiatives that reflect our mission: “Connecting Aotearoa-New Zealand to UNESCO and the world by the fostering and sharing of ideas; and contributing to building the knowledge and capabilities needed to ensure a better future for all.”

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.
