The Northern Drivers' Charitable Trust [NDCT] is a registered charitable trust that
was established in 1987.
Since 2019, the NDCT has been offering Skills & Training scholarships to members
of unions affiliated with the NZ Council of Trade Unions. Additionally, the spouse or
child of the union member is also eligible to apply. This initiative allows the NDCT
to fulfil its education and training objectives while contributing to the trade union
To raise awareness of these scholarships, the NDCT kindly requests that your
union informs its members about the financial assistance available for individuals
who aspire to gain training or retraining in any trade, skill, or tertiary study.
Scholarship applications are now open and will be accepted until January 20,
2024. The maximum value of each scholarship is $3,000 per individual per year.
This year, the Trust Board has reinforced the union membership requirement. To
be eligible for a scholarship, the union member must have a minimum of 6 months
of active financial union membership prior to submitting a scholarship application.
We invite you to visit the NDCT website at www.driverstrust.org.nz for more
