Scholarship Opportunities in New Zealand for African Students

Citizens from various parts of Africa have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to pursue a Postgraduate, Graduate, or Masters’ degree in health, nutrition or micro enterprise development.

The New Zealand Development Scholarships (NZDS) scheme offers the opportunity to people from targeted developing countries to undertake development-related studies at tertiary education institutions in New Zealand.
In the southern and eastern Africa region, NZAID offers NZDS in the Open category (NZDS-Open) to candidates from Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

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, promote health, nutrition and improve rural livelihoods, and contribute to the human resource base of Africa. NZAID capacity building complements the work done in country by multilateral agencies and non-governmental organisations’ (NGO) projects.
