Information for students who will be studying in 2014.
This page has scholarship information specific to Malaysia. It should be read with the general information in the New Zealand ASEAN Scholars Awards section.
The New Zealand-ASEAN Scholars Awards seek to make a substantial contribution to ASEAN’s development by providing opportunities for postgraduate study (i.e. Postgraduate Diploma, Master’s degree and doctorate/PhD) in New Zealand.
The New Zealand-ASEAN Scholars Awards (NZ-AS) are part of the New Zealand’s official development assistance to the ASEAN region. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, through the New Zealand Aid Programme, delivers this scholarships scheme.
Under the NZ-AS scheme, up to 180 scholarships are available to candidates from ASEAN countries. From the total of 180, up to 4 scholarships per annum are available for Malaysian applicants.
The aim will be to allocate at least one scholarship each year to a candidate from Sabah and another to a candidate from Sarawak. The remaining two scholarships will be available to candidates from Peninsular Malaysia. If in any year suitable candidates are not forthcoming from one of these three areas the criteria will be relaxed to take in candidates from elsewhere in Malaysia.
Individuals who meet the following profile may apply for the NZ-AS Malaysian scholarships:
|30 August 2013||Applications due|
|September / October||Short-listed candidates interviewed|
|October / November||Successful candidates informed|
|Janaury 2014||Pre -departure briefing|
