New Zealand ASEAN Scholars award applications opening soon
New Zealand will soon invite applications for the 2011 round (2012 intake) of the New Zealand - ASEAN Scholar awards. Fifty tertiary scholarships will be offered to Indonesian citizens for post-graduate study in New Zealand.
New Zealand-ASEAN Scholar (NZAS) awards empower individuals with the knowledge, skills and qualifications to contribute to economic, social and political development within ASEAN nations.
In 2011 New Zealand will be offering 50 awards for Indonesians, a substantial increase from the 15 provided last year. This increase was one in a number of initiatives New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully announced late last year that support New Zealand’s deepening relationships with ASEAN countries.
Full details and guidelines will be available by the end of February on this website and at www.aid.govt.nz.
