Sponsors of the Manaaki New Zealand Scholarships.
The NZ Manaaki scholarship is sponsored by the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT). This scholarship is fully funded and covers all educational expenses, including economy-class air tickets with travel insurance plans for students. It also provides medical and life insurance in NZ, stipend money every month, and funds allocation to meet research or thesis expenditures.
You might be wondering if the Manaaki scholarship offers too much, but let me tell you about another benefit: you can apply for a New Zealand work permit. This will allow you to work part-time while studying in New Zealand.
