Scholarship applications going online

We want to make the process of applying for Education New Zealand (ENZ) scholarships that little bit easier.

What is changing?

From 1 September 2016, there will be a change in process for ENZ’s two biggest outbound scholarships, the Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Asia and the newly launched Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Latin America. From that date, the application forms will be available here on our website.

What does this mean for scholarship applicants?

Applicants can now submit the full application online, and will be able to upload the requested documents (transcripts, CV, citizenship documents) via the online form. Even reference requests can be sent via the online form – all that’s needed is the referee’s email address. No more posting of applications or chasing on referee’s doors!

Key dates

Applications for the Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Asia go live from 1 September 2016 and close 30 September 2016.

Applications for the Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Latin America go live from 1 September 2016 and close 30 October 2016.

The Prime Minister’s Scholarships for Asia and the Prime Minister’s Scholarships Latin America are initiatives by the government to enable New Zealand students to study or complete an internship in Asia or Latin America and, in doing so, build lasting connections.
