NZ offers scholarships to Fijians

FIJIANS wishing to study in New Zealand now have an opportunity through the 2015 NZ Pacific scholarships for postgraduate level.

NZ Acting Head of Mission Mark Ramsden said the opportunity would contribute to Fiji's growing population of well-educated and highly-skilled people to help develop the leadership potential of a new generation.

"These scholarships provide opportunities for people to obtain qualifications in specific subject areas that are relevant to Fiji's development needs and enhance their employability," Mr Ramsden said.

The NZAid Program is offering 10 scholarships for postgraduate certificate, diploma, masters, and doctorate level at selected NZ universities and technical institutions.

The recipients will study in NZ's education system and have access to an influential network of Pacific alumni.

The key priority subject areas for NZ scholarships are agriculture, forestry, finance and economics, disaster risk management, education, and health.

The High Commission confirmed selection would be on the basis of strong and proven academic merit, relevance of the proposed study to the human resource development priorities of Fiji and leadership potential.

Last year, 10 Fiji citizens were awarded NZ Pacific scholarships and commenced studies this year.

Applications opened this week and will close at the end of April.
