Freyberg Scholarships are awarded to encourage graduate study into areas relevant to national security.
Study should be undertaken at a recognised institution in an Asia-Pacific country, including Canada and the United States. The scholarships are not available for study within New Zealand.
It is appropriate that the name of the late Lord Freyberg is associated with the scholarships given his distinguished record in the New Zealand Armed Forces and his great contribution to New Zealand security.
Applicants must be New Zealand residents or permanent residents and who meet the following academic requirements: they should normally have obtained at least second class honours, division A, or equivalent in their qualifying degree and have completed academic studies in political science, history, economics or some other discipline that may be considered appropriate foundation for such study.
$70,000 will be made available annually for the award of one or more scholarships.
