ENZ and Go Overseas bring scholarship to Europe
After a positive response in the US, ENZ and Go Overseas have launched the New Zealand study abroad scholarship campaign in Europe.
Ute Haug, ENZ Senior Market Development Manager, Europe, said ENZ decided to launch a pilot campaign with Go Overseas in Europe after seeing its success in the US.
“Each year, the US campaign generates an increased interest in New Zealand from US study abroad students, along with amplified social media activity around New Zealand.
“Now in the fourth year, this year’s campaign will see us bring the scholarship to Europe too, helping its students to see that New Zealand institutions offer sought-after qualifications that are well recognised in Europe,” said Ute.
Both the US and Europe scholarship campaigns will run from 8 September to 13 October.
Last year’s campaign saw 12 percent of applicants were graduate students. To capture the interest of this applicant pool, three New Zealand institutions – University of Auckland, University of Otago and Victoria University of Wellington – are each offering one postgraduate scholarship for qualified US students.
While only one winner is selected for each scholarship, ENZ Field Director, North America Alanna Dick said participating New Zealand institutions are still able to follow up with applicants interested in their institution.
“Since the start of the US campaign in 2014, participating New Zealand universities and ITPs have worked closely with ENZ and Go Overseas to follow up these student leads generated from the applications,” said Alanna
“For example, in the US last year, the scholarship was shared through a digital campaign with more than 1,500 universities and 2,600 industry professionals, resulting in more than 3,000 student applications.
