The New Zealand International Doctoral Research Scholarships (NZIDRS) are funded by the New Zealand Government. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic merit. The NZIDRS provides full tuition fees, plus living and other allowances for successful applicants. Up to ten scholarships are awarded each year. The New Zealand International Doctoral Research Scholarships provide financial support for postgraduate students from designated countries seeking postgraduate degrees by research in New Zealand universities.

Funded by the New Zealand Government and administered by Education New Zealand, the scholarships aim to:

  • attract top international students
  • maximise the research capability, and output of New Zealand tertiary providers
  • build deeper education partnerships with participating countries and regions
  • enhance the international profile and reputation of New Zealand’s tertiary education institutions.

Entitlements under the New Zealand International Doctoral Research Scholarships are as follows:

  • full tuition fees for three (3) years of full-time doctoral study
  • NZ$ 25,000 per annum living allowance (NZ$2,083.33 per month)
  • up to NZ$600 per annum health insurance allowance
