Please note that persons who graduated before 2012 will not be eligible to apply.
Citizens of New Zealand who are currently studying at or have recently graduated from a university in another Knox-eligible country (Australia, Canada or the United Kingdom) may be eligible to submit a Knox Fellowship application. This will be handled on a case-by-case basis and candidates should contact Rebecca Lock at the Committee on General Scholarships at Harvard University to discuss their particular circumstances.
A Knox Fellowship pays Harvard tuition and health insurance fees and provides a stipend sufficient to cover a student's living expenses for the 10-month academic year. Knox Fellowship funding is guaranteed for up to two years of study at Harvard for students in degree programmes requiring more than one year of study.
The number of fellowships awarded each year varies.
New Zealand nominations to the Harvard Committee on General Scholarships are made in December.
Final decisions are made by Harvard in March/April of the following year.
