Future proof yourself in New Zealand

Win a NZ$15,000 scholarship to study at a high school in New Zealand, the #1 destination for preparing students for the future (The Economist Intelligence Unit).

Follow the Kiwi and learn new skills

The Follow the Kiwi scholarship is for high school students from France, Germany and Italy to study at a New Zealand school for a minimum of ten weeks. If you want to perfect your English, take up a new sport like rugby or netball, or spend time cooking, dancing or playing an instrument, then this scholarship is for you. New Zealand schools offer a wide range of subjects that will give you the skills you want and prepare you for the future. 

New Zealand's education system takes a high-quality, innovative teaching approach in a safe learning environment. Students enjoy personal attention from passionate teachers and a balance of theoretical and practical learning. Our schools encourage students to think creatively and independently, allowing every student to reach their potential.

There are three Follow the Kiwi scholarships available for high school students: one each for France, Germany and Italy. Each Follow the Kiwi scholarship provides NZ$15,000 (approximately €8,900) to contribute to tuition, school-related costs and living expenses. Scholars must study in New Zealand for a minimum of one school term (ten weeks), commencing in April 2019 at the latest.
