The aim of this funding is to support engagement activities with education agents from Europe, Brazil and Colombia. New Zealand institutions are welcome to submit proposals and apply for up to $3000 per project. We will fund up to 15 projects that focus on engaging with agents from Europe, Brazil and Colombia.

ENZ’s Market Development Manager – Europe, Adina Stoye, said ENZ has a strong and loyal network of agents in Europe, especially Germany and Italy.

They are keen for support and engagement with New Zealand institutions, and welcome opportunities for events and promotional activities. This initiative is a wonderful opportunity for New Zealand education providers to promote their education offering through building education agent networks.” 

Proposed activities should be completed during the second half of 2023 and have firm goals and outcomes in place. Examples of activities are a scholarship campaign, contribution to bringing an agent to New Zealand for a famil, or supporting a trip to attend an event organised by agents.

ENZ’s Director of Engagement – Latin America, Javiera Visedo said education agents in Latin America are keen to learn more about what a New Zealand education has to offer, with students excited at the prospect of studying here. Reconnecting with New Zealand education providers is a top priority for them.”

Applications are open to New Zealand institutions only. This includes New Zealand education providers such as universities, Private Training Establishments (PTEs), English Language Schools (ELS), regional economic development agencies, schools, and peak bodies. Some providers may wish to work together to submit their applications, for example high schools or ELS.
