Apply Procedure
The application process for a New Zealand Commonwealth Scholarship is different to other New Zealand Scholarships. Applicants must submit their applications to their country’s ‘Nominating Agency’ first. The Nominating Agency then ‘nominates’ two applicants from the submitted applications to send to the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Read the Commonwealth section of the How to Apply page carefully before you submit an application.

Selection Procedure
All our communication is by email, so if you are applying for a scholarship, check your email regularly for any correspondence from us. Also, if your email address changes make sure you update your email contact details via the application portal (external link)
