Application opening and closing dates for your country

The 2024 tertiary Manaaki New Zealand Scholarships application round for all eligible countries and regions has closed.

The Manaaki New Zealand Scholarships online application system can get overloaded at application closing time. This can cause technical issues. To avoid any disappointment, submit your application 3-10 days before the closing deadline. We accept no responsibility for technical problems with any IT systems.

Deadlines are in New Zealand Time (NZDT). Applications close at midday, not midnight.

Application limits

Please note that the Manaaki New Zealand Scholarship Programme application system may close early to countries from which a large volume of applications have been received. To avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend applying as early as possible.
