New Zealand: Undergraduate Scholarship
New Zealand International Undergratuate Scholarships
Funded by the New Zealand Government and administered by Education New Zealand, the New Zealand International Undergraduate Scholarships (NZIUS) are a significant educational opportunity.
The Scholarships provide financial support by way of international tuition fees for eligible students from designated localities who are undertaking undergraduate study at New Zealand institutions. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit.
A World Class Opportunity
New Zealand institutions provide the opportunity to study under internationally recognised academics and researchers in a range of disciplines. A qualification from a New Zealand institution ranks with the best internationally.
New Zealand degrees have a reputation globally for being practical, modern and desirable. In some niche areas such as biotechnology, forensic science and marine engineering, New Zealand degrees are acknowledged as being world leading. Students educated in the New Zealand education environment are earning a reputation as a new breed of innovative thinkers and are enjoying success the world over.
The New Zealand International Undergraduate Scholarships reflect the New Zealand Government’s commitment to deepening New Zealand’s educational partnerships with participating countries and regions.
The New Zealand education system provides students with the knowledge and skills to achieve results equal to the world’s best. The scholarship programme is about sharing this excellence with the rest of the world, and bringing the best from elsewhere to share their knowledge with New Zealand.
Up to 28 scholarships will be awarded for students undertaking undergraduate study in the 2006 New Zealand academic year. Students are to submit their applications to the designated agency in their country of citizenship. They will then nominate a set number of candidates to Education New Zealand for final selection.
