New Zealand International Scholarships
The NZ Government is offering lucrative scholarship opportunities for students from other countries if they enroll in the educational institutes of NZ and fulfill the eligibility criterion. This is a great opportunity for young and bright international students who want to study in New Zealand but cannot do so because of the expenses. Scholarships for studying in New Zealand make it easier to bear all the expenditures that come as being an international student.

Travel funds are given subject to the duration of the scholarship. Monetary aid is given for thesis and research.
Fields of study
The scholarship is offered for the Postgraduate and undergraduate degrees in the fields of study that are most related to the expansion needs of the country such as disaster risk management, or agriculture development.
