The NCSP funds a specific scholarship fund programme in order to support New Zealand laboratory scientists and cytotechnicians reporting cervical cytology to attend conferences and courses. In some years the NCPTS runs a National Training Day, funding New Zealand scientists / cytotechnicians to attend a one-day programme within New Zealand.  In 2021 there will be a National Training Day in the second half of the year. Scholarships will also be offered in 2021 for registration for online conferences and courses in 2021/2022.
