Education New Zealand – “Dream NEW” Scholarship

We help you find money for your education.

We are a non-profit organisation based in Germany called ItS Initiative für transparente Studienförderung (initiative for transparent study grants). The main objective of our initiative is to bring transparency in the EU funding landscape and to ensure that study support is being accessible for everyone. We started our mission in Germany with our platform showing through a matching algorithm all pupils and students in Germany which support options match their profile.

Because of the great success of myStipendium in Germany, we decided to launch an EU version of it. This version does not only cover scholarships but also all other types of funding that could be applied for to finance your own studies. With more than 12,000 funding opportunities and 28 filter criteria, European Funding Guide is the largest study funding portal within the EU. The project is being co-financed by the European Commission.

We are working with international offices, student advisory services, deans, student associations, teachers, professors and university presidents in order to inform about funding opportunities for students. Those students, who currently believe they have no chance of getting funding for their studies, should be motivated to send out applications to several funding institutions.

The “Dream NEW” scholarship has been designed for students who dream big, crave adventure and set their sights on new horizons. It is for those wanting to realise their vision in the forward-thinking education climate of New Zealand – a country where innovation flourishes, and where people from all over the world come together to follow their dreams.

“Dream NEW” Scholarships are valued at up to NZD$ 12,500 (approx. 7,500 €) each and will allow you to study at one of New Zealand’s highly-ranked, world class universities. The scholarship will cover tuition fees for eight students undertaking a Study Abroad programme in Semester One, February/March 2017.

Each of New Zealand’s eight universities offering one “Dream NEW” scholarship. Candidates can choose to study at Auckland University of Technology, Lincoln University, Massey University, University of Auckland, University of Canterbury, University of Otago, University of Waikato or Victoria University of Wellington.
