Document Checklist

In order for a scholarship application to be deemed ‘complete’ you must have:

  • Completed all sections on the application form
  • Attached a detailed CV with your work history, voluntary work, and qualifications
  • Evidence of your current employment
  • Completed your Video component.


  • Proof of name and date of birth
  • Proof of change of name (if applicable)
  • Proof of residency status (if applicable)
  • Proof of your highest qualification.

Applications that are not supported by the correct documents will be considered incomplete. In this instance, a member of the TeachNZ team will contact you to make you aware of this. If you do not supply the correct documentation before the ‘Additional/missing documents date’ your application will be ineligible and not be assessed.
