Scholarship applications close on Friday

Applications for summer internships with the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Pacific Cooperation Foundation close this Friday, September 21.

The internships are open to current New Zealand Scholarship students studying at undergraduate level.

They are intended to give high achieving students from the Pacific and Timor Leste the chance to obtain professional experience with reputable New Zealand companies and government organisations, to develop professional networks, and to improve their readiness to enter employment on return to their home country.

Internships will last from November 19, 2018 until February 15, 2019.

Although most internships are unpaid, MFAT will continue to pay standard scholarship stipends for the period of the internship.

Interns will still be entitled to take Reunion Travel during the summer period, but will be expected to do so at a time that does not interfere with their internship or study responsibilities.

If you are interested, fill out the application form on the link at the bottom of this story and send them by email to by no later than 5pm – Friday, September 21, 2018.
