Fulbright New Zealand was established in 1948 by Treaty between the governments of New Zealand and the United States to promote international understanding by the establishment of educational and cultural exchanges.
Purpose of award
The Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Scholarship in Entrepreneurship is for a talented New Zealander in a knowledge economy-related field to complete a Master’s degree at an American university and to gain professional work experience in the US and in New Zealand.
To be eligible, you must:
* have at least a four-year degree (or a three-year degree with honours), but not hold a doctoral degree at the time you take up your award;
* have a minimum of three years work experience in the proposed field of study;
* have a realistic vision of how you will aid in the development of New Zealand’s knowledge economy. Implicit in this is an awareness that you would be required to return to New Zealand on completion of your degree;
* meet the citizenship requirements for this award. ie.:
- you are a New Zealand citizen
- AND you are not a permanent resident or citizen of the US
- AND are not currently living in the US
Applicants outside New Zealand who are unable to attend an interview in person may be disadvantaged.
Preference for Fulbright awards is given to candidates who have not had extensive recent experience in the US.
