Encouraging Christian media students 

CBA gives out three scholarships to media students every year valued at $4,000 each.

Applications are open to media, communication, journalism, film, radio and audio engineering students who have been accepted to study at an NZQA accredited institution. All applicants must be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents.

The purpose of these scholarships is to encourage and support Christian students studying for a career in mainstream media.

Our hope is that in years to come these scholarship recipients will go on to shape the conversations and stories told in New Zealand’s mass media – and we are privileged to play a small part in supporting them. Feel free to email the scholarship secretary if you have any questions about applying.

Bonus: Venn Summer Conference

All scholarship winners are invited to attend the Venn Summer Conference in January at CBA’s expense. Visit the Venn Foundation website to learn more about the conference.
