he New Zealand Government provides Scholarships to foreign students through its Aid Programme that is managed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Its mission is to support sustainable development in developing countries in order to reduce poverty and contribute to a more secure, equitable and prosperous world.
New Zealand Aid Programme Scholarships are for individuals from developing countries who are motivated to make a difference at home. Scholars have the opportunity to study subjects that will help with social, economic or political needs in their own country. The New Zealand Aid Programme is looking for people with strong academic or work skills, and leadership ability or potential.
New Zealand Government offers scholarships to people from the Pacific and some countries in Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa. Scholarships are available at a variety of levels of study from certificate to undergraduate to PhD. Tailored internships or work placements are also available to applicants from some countries.
With a full New Zealand Scholarship, scholars receive:
- full tuition fees
- living allowance (a stipend) of NZ$491 per week. This will help with a scholar’s basic living expenses, but it is not enough to cover the living costs of any family members
- an establishment allowance of NZ$3000. This is to help with set-up costs in New Zealand. For example, you can use it for accommodation expenses, text books, or other study materials
- medical insurance when you are in New Zealand
- travel to and from your own country. This is for travel from your own country at the start of the scholarship, and for return travel at the end of your scholarship
- travel insurance
- travel home during your scholarship (We allow for one or two trips home, depending on the length of your scholarship)
- help with research and thesis costs for many postgraduate students
