Educational Assistance

This is fantastic news! Please pass on my sincere thanks to everyone. This grant (towards Masters in Advanced Leadership Practise at Massey University) is going to make a huge difference to me and my family. Member

I successfully defended my Doctoral thesis on Friday 5 May, at my Viva Voce. I was able to get there thanks to the Guild’s grant-[that wee grant was instrumental in getting me over the line] and You (the Guild) have been thanked in my acknowledgements. It will be official (i.e. I can use “Dr”) once I’ve graduated in December. Member

I graduated from Auckland University on Wednesday with my Master in Laws with First Class Honours in Human Rights. I would like to thank the Guild for the support you have provided for both my Bachelors and my Masters between 2000 and 2007. The support from the Guild makes a huge difference when trying to raise a family and study at the same time. Even more so now Police only provide study assistance generally. So thank you all. Member
