PACIFICA Secondary School Grants


PACIFICA (Pacific Allied (Women’s) Council Inspires Faith in Ideals Concerning All) Incorporated) is a non-profit community organisation that was founded in 1976 with a network of branches throughout Aotearoa-New Zealand. Our 20 branches operate in our three designated regions: Northern, Central and Southern. 

From 2002 to 2010, PACIFICA branches fundraised to build an education fund to provide educational grants to assist Pacific students
with their educational development and to help fulfil their dreams and aspirations. PACIFICA has been distributing these grants since 2010.

In 2023, PACIFICA Inc. is delighted to offer secondary education grants of $500 to a Pacific young woman in each of the PACIFICA regions – Northern, Central, and Southern - who are currently in Year 12 of secondary education and would benefit from support in their education and to achieve their goals.
