1. Check if your country is eligible for a Scholarship

Manaaki New Zealand Scholarships are available to citizens from eligible countries. If your country is not on the list, then the New Zealand Government does not offer any academic scholarships to you.

Select a region to find out if your country is eligible

Please note: As a result of the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 border and travel restrictions, we are maintaining a reduced selection round for tertiary scholarships to New Zealand in 2022, which will be available to school leaver applicants from the Pacific only. Selection for scholarships to undertake tertiary study in the Pacific has not changed.
