The New Zealand-ASEAN Scholars Awards seek to make a substantial contribution to ASEAN’s development by providing opportunities for postgraduate study (i.e. Postgraduate Diploma, Master’s degree and doctorate/PhD) in New Zealand. Under the NZ-AS scheme, up to 180 scholarships are available to candidates from ASEAN countries. From the total of 180, up to 4 scholarships per annum are available for Malaysian applicants. 

The scholarships are for full-time study at one of nine eligible New Zealand institutions. The aim will be to allocate at least one scholarship each year to a candidate from Sabah and another to a candidate from Sarawak. The remaining two scholarships will be available to candidates from Peninsular Malaysia. If in any year suitable candidates are not forthcoming from one of these three areas the criteria will be relaxed to take in candidates from elsewhere in Malaysia. 

Scholarships include financial support for tuition, living costs while in New Zealand, an establishment allowance on arrival in New Zealand, and return airfares. The partners of students are eligible for a work visa that allows them to live and work in New Zealand for the duration of their partner’s study. 

Individuals who meet the following profile may apply for the NZ-AS Malaysian scholarships:

  • From the public or private sector or civil society, with priority being accorded to candidates who can demonstrate leadership quality and potential for future leadership;
  • The proposed field of study should be of arguable relevance to the future development of ASEAN as a whole, of Malaysia, of a state in Malaysia (e.g. Sabah or Sarawak) or of an ethnic group in Malaysia. (Preference may be extended to a suitable Orang Asli candidate from Peninsular Malaysia if one applies, given the educational disadvantage experienced by that group.) 
  • Candidates should be under 40 years of age at the time of application for Masters and under 45 years of age at the time of application for PhD.
  • Those with work experience in a field relevant to their intended course of postgraduate study, and who can demonstrate a connection between their previous field of study and their intended field of postgraduate study will have an advantage.
  • Applicants must also meet the general eligibility criteria for New Zealand ASEAN Scholars Awards.
