 You must complete the eligibility questionnaire before you can apply for a scholarship.

The New Zealand Scholarship application form requires you to:

  • provide your name, birth date, physical address and phone number

  • list your preferred courses and the education institution for your scholarship

    Note: Your preferred courses must progress on from the highest qualification that you have previously completed.

  • list the qualifications you have already completed
  • list any awards or prizes you have won, or articles you have published
  • provide the details of previous jobs or work experience
  • describe how your work experience relates to your preferred courses or career (Note: School leavers and first year undergraduate applicants do not need work experience.)

Academic records or transcripts

With your application form, you need to provide:
  1. a copy of your academic records or transcripts, showing your grades
  2. the grading scale of your education institution
  3. translations of these documents into English.
At this stage, your academic records don’t need to be verified by an official. Verified records are stamped and signed by a solicitor, a notary public or a Justice of the Peace. Their signature confirms that your academic record is genuine.

Applying for PhD study

Scholarship applicants may apply to undertake doctoral studies in any of the identified sectors.  You must, however, be able to show that there are employment opportunities on your return that require you to undertake unsupervised post-doctoral research, or to teach at degree level.  You must also be able to show how your proposed research proposal will benefit your country. PhD scholarship applicants who make it to the interview stage will need to provide evidence at the interview that they have either secured a supervisor or are in active discussions with a potential supervisor.

PhD and Master’s by Thesis applicants must describe their proposed research

If you apply for a PhD scholarship or a Master's scholarship (by thesis), on your application form you need to describe:
  • your proposed PhD or Master's research
  • your proposed approach to your research
  • For PhD applicants: the employment opportunities on your return that will require you to undertake unsupervised post-doctoral research, or to teach at degree level
  • For PhD applicants: how your proposed research proposal will benefit your country.

No need to provide these things when you apply

You don’t need to provide these things with your application form:
  • verified copies of your academic records or transcripts for completed qualifications
  • English language test scores
  • verified copies of your birth certificate, passport and government ID
  • a student visa
  • a Letter of Place from a university or education institution
  • confirmation of a PhD supervisor (PhD scholarship applicants).

No need to have a PhD supervisor when you apply

As a PhD scholarship applicant, you do not need to prove that you already have a PhD supervisor, when you apply for a New Zealand Scholarship.
But later in the PhD process, if we select you for an interview, then you must prove that you have a PhD supervisor, or you are close to confirming a PhD supervisor.
In the interview, we will want to see emails between you and a suitable PhD supervisor, confirming that:
  1. your PhD research topic is viable, and
  2. they are willing to be your PhD supervisor.
For this reason, we strongly recommend that you look for and email suitable PhD supervisors as soon as possible.
