The New Zealand International Doctoral Research Scholarships (NZIDRS) are funded by the New Zealand Government. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic merit. The NZIDRS provides full tuition fees, plus living and other allowances for successful applicants. Up to ten scholarships are awarded each year.
New Zealand offers a world class education system that is globally recognised and portable. To find out more about the advantages of a New Zealand education visit http://nzeducated.com/int/en/why
Additional funds are not available to support accompanying dependants, however the children of international PhD students are treated as domestic students in our education system. This means they pay no international fees and have access to learning support. Partners of PhD students also have some work rights.
You will need to provide evidence that academic supervision is available when you apply for this scholarship. Applicants should ensure that their proposed (New Zealand based) Supervisor completes the relevant page within the NZIDRS Application form.
