How to Apply for New Zealand Scholarships
Scholarships recognise academic excellence and potential and provide talented students with the opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills.
A scholarship award allows students to take up new challenges and experiences which may not otherwise be available.
Universities NZ, through its Scholarships Committee, administers a wide range of scholarships at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, on behalf of charitable trusts, private donors, industry and other benefactors.
Scholarships managed by Universities NZ
Universities NZ manages a number of nationally contestable scholarship programmes.
Each scholarship has its own regulations which describe the eligibility criteria for applicants and the scope of the scholarship.
Intending applicants should check the regulations to confirm their eligibility and their understanding of the scholarship programme.
Universities NZ uses an online application system.
To apply for a scholarship applicants must be registered in this system and use the relevant online application form.
Each scholarship has its own closing date. These dates are managed by the system and cannot be altered.
