Education is vital to the New Zealand Aid Programme's mission of supporting sustainable development in order to reduce poverty and contribute to a more secure, equitable and prosperous world. Scholarships are available to citizens from selected developing countries to undertake vocational training or tertiary level study in their home country, in New Zealand, or in the Pacific region.
These scholarships enhance the skills, training and knowledge of individuals, and build their capacity to contribute to the sustainable development of key areas in their home country. Scholarship information for the 2013 intake is now available.

Single year qualifications will now be considered under the New Zealand Pacific Scholarships, New Zealand Development Scholarships and New Zealand ASEAN Scholarships schemes. Read more
