NSW Premier's Teacher Scholarships

Scholarship-funded study tours

The NSW Premier's Teacher Scholarships program is an initiative of the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet and administered by the NSW Department of Education.

The NSW Premier's Teacher Scholarships provide $10,000 or $15,000 for a five-week study tour within Australia or overseas.

The program aims to deliver significant outcomes for scholarship recipients, students, teacher colleagues and school communities. The majority of scholarships are for school-based teachers to explore best practice in their chosen subject area.

The scholarships, funded by corporate supporters and private foundations, are open to teachers in NSW government and non-government schools, TAFE NSW campuses and early childhood centres. Scholarships are awarded in the year prior to the study tour.

Current partners include Anika Foundation, Education Perfect, English Teachers Association, Hicksons Lawyers, History Teachers' Association of NSW, NSW Education Standards Authority, Reserve Bank of Australia, Teachers Mutual Bank, University of Sydney and the NSW Department of Education.

Applications for the 2023 Premier's Teacher Scholarships are due to open during Term 1, 2022. Possible scholarship offerings are listed on the Premier's Teacher Scholarships page. They are subject to change prior to applications opening.
