Application opening and closing dates for your country

Find your country in the table below for the opening and closing dates for New Zealand Scholarship applications from your country.

You can submit your application any time between the opening date and the closing deadline. We do not accept late applications.

The 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.

Most deadlines are in New Zealand Time (NZDT)(external link). Applications close at midday, not midnight.

Applications for different countries will have slightly different closing and opening dates to prevent system overloading. Please check the dates for your country as they may not be the same as others.
