Criteria - Paearu

The current scholarship round is open for group applications only. These can be made by universities, wānanga, institutes of technology and polytechnics, private training establishments, iwi and other educational organisations on behalf of a group of students.

Participants in group programmes need to be:

  • at least 18 years old; and
  • a New Zealand citizen OR permanent resident; and
  • have lived in New Zealand for 12 of the past 24 months

Note: There is flexibility in selecting the student participants who make up a group programme. Students do not need to be selected at the time of applying, and can be recruited by the education provider closer to the time of travel.
