New Zealand Scholarships are prestigious scholarships for international students from developing countries to study in New Zealand and the Pacific. Our scholarships foster and build potential leaders, as well as equipping individuals with skills and knowledge to benefit their home country.

Studying with a New Zealand Scholarship is a great opportunity for personal and academic growth, unique experiences and career development. Our network of scholars go on to make a difference in government, business, NGOs and local community.
