Tell us how a New Zealand education would make you NEW — NZ $15,000

The I AM NEW scholarship is for high school students from France, Germany and Italy to study at a New Zealand high school for a minimum of ten weeks.

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. New Zealand schools offer a wide range of subjects that develop students’ ability to think critically, creatively and collaboratively. A New Zealand education encourages diversity, empathy, and a fresh way of looking at the world.

There are three I AM NEW scholarships available for high school students: one each for France, Germany and Italy. Each scholarship provides NZ $15,000 (approximately €8,500) to contribute to tuition, school-related costs and living expenses.

Scholarship winners must study in New Zealand for a minimum of one school term (ten weeks), commencing by February 2021 (Term 1 of 2021) at the latest.
