HTANSW Premier's History Scholarship

The NSW Premier's Teacher Scholarships were first introduced in 1999, and were instituted to enhance and enrich the learning experiences of students in the classroom whilst presenting a unique opportunity for teachers to develop skills and knowledge in their chosen field of expertise.

The HTANSW sponsors two scholarships of $10,000 value, available for teachers of history in schools or TAFE NSW Institutes who are current individual members of HTANSW only. The scholarship supports visits to universities, schools, libraries and historical sites and research into exemplary practice relevant to the teaching of History in the NSW curriculum.

These scholarships are for study in either Australia or overseas.
