Scholarship applications open now; webinars coming up

News & Events

The PM's Scholarships for Asia and Latin America are officially back open for individual applications!

The relaunch was announced by New Zealand's Education Minister Chris Hipkins on 12 July 2022, and marks the first scholarship round for individuals since COVID-19.

Applications are open from 18 July to 31 August 2022. The full steps to apply, and the link to our online application portal, are available on the How to apply page.

This is a scholarship for all New Zealanders. We welcome applicants from all walks of life and backgrounds. You could be studying, a recent graduate, in the workforce, anywhere in between, or in a different situation. There's no upper age limit to the scholarship, and academic excellence isn't everything.

We're looking for New Zealanders who are passionate about global citizenship, can represent New Zealand overseas, and want to create positive change in their communities.

Webinar series

To answer your questions and help you plan the perfect scholarship programme in Asia or Latin America, we're running a series of webinars throughout this application period:

  • Destination North Asia
  • Destination Latin America
  • Destination East Asia & India
  • Scholarships 101

These webinars have now run, but no worries if you missed any. Get caught up with our webinar recordings here.
