Education New Zealand (ENZ) has announced 15 exclusive scholarships for students from India, who may apply by May 16.
The Christchurch Educated Skills Scholarship programme, worth more than Rs 75 lakh, is targeted at Indian graduates wishing to study at post graduate level in Christchurch in specific disciplines, which are aligned to clearly identify skill shortage areas associated with the rebuild programme such as Construction, Engineering, ICT and Science.
After completing a post graduate qualification at Level 7 or above in Christchurch, the Christchurch Educated Skills Scholarship recipients will have opportunities to undertake internships or gain employment in companies which are experiencing growth due to the current economic climate.
The scholarships would be awarded in early June. The study period starts in August 2014 or March 2015. The initiative is a partnership between ENZ, Christchurch Educated and the Canterbury Development Corporation (CDC).
