I realize you are now eager to learn more about the NZ Manaaki Scholarship for the class of 2024–2025, including its eligibility requirements, application procedure, and deadline. To ensure you fully comprehend this scholarship, please read this article through to the end.
Sponsorship of New Zealand Manaaki Scholarship
Let me tell you that the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) is actually a co-sponsor of the Manaaki scholarship. For this reason, the Manaaki scholarship fund is officially recognized as fully funded, covering all educational costs, a student’s economy class airfare with travel insurance, medical and life insurance coverage in NZ, a monthly stipend, and funds allocated to cover research and thesis expenses.
You may be thinking that this is too much, but let me add one more benefit to the Manaaki Scholarship: you may apply for a work visa in New Zealand, which will allow you to work part-time while you are studying there.
Eligibility Criteria & Subjects under NZ Government scholarship
In 2024, all of my students who are citizens of developing African, Asian, Pacific, Latin American, Caribbean, and Commonwealth nations are eligible to apply for this New Zealand government scholarship (Ref nz.gov).
On the other hand, a large selection of courses (including engineering, nursing, health-related courses, disaster management, environmental sciences, climate change, aquaculture & fisheries, tourism courses, and many more) are available to you at several New Zealand universities through the Manaaki scholarship (Ref Subjects).
