The Reserve Bank of New Zealand offers two scholarships each year to students who are majoring in Economics, Finance or Banking and who are entering their Honours, Masters or final year of PhD study. Students must have attained at least a B+ average and be studying full time over the academic year (February to November).

The value of each scholarship will be $10,000. This money will be paid fortnightly during the academic year.

In addition to the $10,000, an offer of employment is provided at the completion of your qualification. It is important to note that a condition of receipt of the scholarship is that you must accept the position with the Reserve Bank and must remain in that position for a specified period of time. Should this condition not be met you will be required to repay the sum of the scholarship payments made to you.

We welcome applications from international students, provided you are legally entitled to work in New Zealand.

Once short listing has been completed, successful applicants will be asked to attend a half day interview process at the Bank in Wellington. This typically takes place at the beginning of February.

The Māori and Pacific Islands Scholarship in Economics, Finance and Banking has been developed as part of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand’s Equal Employment Opportunities programme.

The purpose of the Scholarship is to encourage Māori and Pacific Island students to pursue studies in the field of economics, finance and banking studies. The Reserve Bank’s objective is to increase the number of Māori and Pacific Island students with tertiary qualifications in economics, finance and banking studies to honours level, and thereby increase the numbers of these students employed in policy departments within the Bank.

Eligibility

 

The scholarship is open to Māori and Pacific Island university students who have completed Economics, Finance or Banking studies at the 100 level (completed first year of university), who attained at least a B+ grade and who intend to continue studying to Honours level. Please note that students who are entering their first year of university are not eligible.

Applicants must be studying full time at a New Zealand university. The scholarship will be continued for the original holder up to Honours level (fourth year) providing the holder continues to perform to the required standard.

For further information please email [email protected]


Value

 

The scholarship is valued at $1,500 in the first year, increased to $2,500 in the second year and $3,500 in the final year of study.

The successful applicant will be paired with a Reserve Bank staff member who will act as a mentor. The mentor will make contact regularly during the scholarship programme and can assist with research, advice and provide you with access to some of our resources at the Bank.


Enrolment

 

Evidence of enrolment in a full time degree course and payment of fees will be required with the application.
