Twelve excellence awards will be presented to international students at an awards ceremony on Friday 19 October 2018. The ceremony will be held at Parliament and the awards will be presented by Hon Paul Eagle MP.

Prizes: Each winner will be awarded a trophy and a certificate

Award Categories: Twelve winners will be selected across the following six categories. Submit ONE application only, and select the category which best suits your key achievements. You will have an opportunity on the application form to provide information about achievements in other categories.

  • Award categories 1-5 are open to international students currently studying in the Wellington region.
  • Applicants must hold current overseas citizenship and not be a citizen or permanent resident of New Zealand or Australia.
  • Applicants must have studied at an educational institution in the Wellington region for four months or more of the 2018 academic year.

How to apply:

The preferred method of application is for individuals to complete and submit their own self-application.

In the first instance, staff (academic and support) at schools and institutions should encourage their students to complete and submit a self-application. However, to submit an application on behalf of one or more of their students (one application per student), staff can use the nomination form.
