New Zealand Invites Filipinos to Apply for Scholarships

New Zealand, which takes pride of being the only country to have all of its universities rank within top 500 worldwide, invites Filipino students to apply for scholarship offerings.

“We would like to get more students from Mindanao including Moro students and Lumad students to apply for these scholarships,” ABS-CBN News quoted New Zealand Ambassador to the Philippines David Strachan as saying. Every year, the country offers 24 post-graduate scholarships to Filipinos across three fields of study: disaster risk management, agri-industries and renewable energies.

The envoy said that Filipinos are among the fastest growing student populations in New Zealand, with about 3,600 students in 2015.

“There was an 83 percent increase in the number of Filipino students going down to the courses in New Zealand,” he added.
