Scholarships awarded to international students from Germany 

To spread the message that New Zealand is open to international students, Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ) offered five Welcome to New Zealand scholarships to German students – a full scholarship of €8000 (NZ$13,500) and four awards of €3000 (NZ$5,000) each.

L to r: Ronja Härdtner was surprised to be presented with a chocolate fish by ENZ representative Marina Wilmerstadt, and to hear about her scholarship.  

Over the three-month campaign we received hundreds of applications, of which Ronja Härdtner’s was the strongest. A Master’s student in International Nature Conservation at Georg-August-University in Göttingen, Ronja will complete her degree at Lincoln University in New Zealand.  

Thanks to everyone who helped ENZ representative Marina Wilmerstadt to surprise Ronja at her university. You can see her reaction to the big news here.

Congratulations to Ronja for winning the Welcome to New Zealand scholarship, and to the other award winners who will be confirmed shortly. We can’t wait to welcome you all to Aotearoa New Zealand.

What's in it for me?
