Scholarships available to exporters

Scholarships available to exporters

The New Zealand School of Export is making available a number of scholarships for exporters enrolling in the School’s internationally accredited professional development programme – the Diploma of International Trade – which is delivered through distance education.

The School has reinvested some of the proceeds from its income-generating activities into scholarships, as befits its status as a Charitable Trust.  “We are delighted to be able to lend our support to New Zealand exporters in such a practical way and hope that in providing these scholarships, those who might otherwise be unable to participate in the Diploma will be given the opportunity to do so” said the School’s Director Dr Romuald Rudzki.

Scholarships, each to the value of $1200 are available to those enrolling in the Diploma of International Trade for the fifth cohort which starts on 1st February 2009.  Exporters within the following categories are encouraged to apply: sole trader exporter; start-up exporter; SME exporter; rural exporter; Maori export business; and Pacific export business.  In addition, there is one scholarship available for members of several participating regional Chambers of Commerce.

Details of the scholarships and an application form are available from or click on  The closing date for applications is Wednesday 31st December 2008.
