New Zealand Commonwealth Scholarships are prestigious scholarships that recognise New Zealand's history and ties to the Commonwealth. Our Commonwealth Scholarships are part of the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) - an international programme under which Commonwealth countries offer scholarships and fellowships to citizens of other Commonwealth states. The purpose of the scholarships is set out in the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan, with the following key principles, to:
- promote mutual cooperation and share educational experience among all Commonwealth countries
- be available across the Commonwealth
- recognise and promote the highest level of intellectual achievement
