NZDS Open Scholarships SOUTH ASIA / MYANMAR / MONGOLIA 2011

The New Zealand Development Scholarships (NZDS) scheme offers the opportunity to people from developing countries to undertake development-related studies at tertiary education institutions in New Zealand.

New Zealand Development Scholarships in the Open category (NZDS-Open) are available to eligible citizens of the Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

By providing people with knowledge and skills to contribute to the sustainable development of key sectors in their home country, the NZDS scheme aims to reduce poverty, provide better services to the poor in the region, promote good governance and contribute to the human resource base of targeted countries. Capacity building aims to strengthen the institutional and organisational ability of government and non-government organisations (NGOs) and communities with assistance that is appropriate to local needs and that promotes self-sufficiency.

Type, level and number of scholarships

New Zealand Development Scholarships in the Open category (NZDS-Open) are awarded for full-time  postgraduate  level  study  (i.e.  Postgraduate  Diplomas,  Masters  degrees  and  a  limited  number  of  Doctorates (PhD)) in New Zealand. Applicants may be working in the public sector, private sector, or  for  civil  society  organisations  (including  NGOs).  Preference  will  be  given  to  applicants  from  disadvantaged communities.

Some postgraduate qualifications require  a  higher  score,  especially  in  the  fields  of  education  and  the  health  sciences.  All  applicants  should  check  the  IELTS  or  TOEFL 3   score  required  for  admission  to  their  selected  New  Zealand  education  institution.
