‘I strongly encourage qualified Indonesians to apply for this scholarship so you can gain a world class education in our beautiful country that truly embraces New Thinking!’ said Dr. Trevor Matheson, New Zealand Ambassador-designate to Indonesia.

The scholarship is available for Indonesians to undertake postgraduate studies at a New Zealand study institution. Successful applicants are entitled to full tuition fees, an establishment allowance upon arrival in New Zealand, a living allowance to cover day to day costs, and return air travel.

Dr. Matheson commented that ‘Our two countries enjoy a highly productive partnership that encompasses political, security, commercial and people-to-people links and we know that students and alumni play an important role in building the strong and vibrant relationship between our two countries that we experience today.’
