About the Dream NEW Scholarship

Deadline:  1 September 2017, 23:59 NZ time

Please note:  If you have received a DAAD or a Promos scholarship, you may not apply for the Dream NEW scholarship.

The “Dream NEW” scholarship is for students from Europe to undertake a one semester undergraduate study experience in New Zealand (Study Abroad). This scholarship has been designed for European students who dream big, crave adventure and set their sights on new horizons. It is for those wanting to realise their vision in the forward-thinking education climate of New Zealand – a country where innovation flourishes, and where people from all over the world come together to follow their dreams.

A New Zealand education encourages you to be open minded, creative and to dream new.

Dream NEW recipients become Kiwi Ambassadors and help Education New Zealand take the New Zealand study experience to the world.  As a Kiwi Ambassador, students will be asked to contribute Instagram photos and have the option of blogging during their semester in New Zealand.  Education New Zealand looks forward to working with the Kiwi Ambassadors to share a truly memorable #StudyinNZ experience.
