Hardship Fund for Learners (HAFL)
On 14 May 2020, the Minister of Education announced the creation of the Hardship Fund for Learners (HAFL).
The purpose of this fund is to provide temporary financial assistance for students who are facing hardship due to the impacts of COVID-19. The funding is distributed by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) directly to Tertiary Education Organisations (TEOs) — like Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi — who are then tasked with allocating financial assistance to students in hardship and most in need of support.
Updated as at 7 September 2020: Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi has fully allocated the funding provided by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) as part of the Hardship Fund for Learners. We are no longer accepting applications at this point in time. If we receive additional funding from TEC, we will reopen applications.
