2015 New Zealand Scholarship fee

Please be reminded that a fee of $30 (GST incl.) per subject will now be charged for entry into New Zealand Scholarship. The $76.70 NCEA assessment fee no longer covers entry to any New Zealand Scholarship subject. International students will continue to pay the full fee of $102.20 (GST incl.) per Scholarship subject entered. An updated fee schedule is now available.

The Assessment (including Examination) Rules for Schools with Consent to Assess have been updated to reflect this change. 

It is important that students are made aware of the fee associated with entry and that only candidates with a genuine intention to sit New Zealand Scholarship are entered. 

Candidates who have not paid the fee will not be eligible for a New Zealand Scholarship Award.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance, including payment for New Zealand Scholarship entry, will continue to be available for those students who meet the financial assistance criteria based on income, benefit or multiple-candidate applications from one family. Application forms are available on the NZQA website.

More information on Financial Assistance can be found on the NZQA website
