You can submit your application any time between the opening date and the closing deadline. We do not accept late applications.
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.
Most deadlines are in New Zealand Time (NZDT)(external link). Applications close at midday, not midnight.
