About the New Zealand Institute of Technology and Polytechnic Excellence Awards (NZITPEA)

Deadline:  1 December, 2017 (midnight) New Zealand Time

As part of their commitment to the Generation Study Abroad initiative, New Zealand Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics offer US$500 Excellence Awards to help students fund their study programme.

The Generation Study Abroad Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics Excellence Award recipients may be selected to 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 share their study experience through blogs, pictures, videos and snaps on our social media channels during their semester in New Zealand.  Education New Zealand looks forward to working with the Kiwi Ambassadors to share a truly memorable #StudyinNZ experience.
