Enabling scholars to pursue programmes of study in fields where the option of studying in New Zealand is limited or not offered.
Contributing to broader objectives including development of regional institutions and building strong person-to-person relationships across the region.
NZRDS are funded by the New Zealand Aid Programme, the New Zealand Government’s overseas aid and development programme. They are managed by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
