Tongan students scholarships

26 Tongans receive NZ Government scholarships

Twenty-one scholars have been accepted into New Zealand universities and six scholars will study at the University of the South Pacific or the Fiji National University.

Acting New Zealand High Commissioner, Nick Hurley, hosted a reception this week to celebrate the students’ achievement and to welcome home returning alumni.

Hurley congratulated the scholarship winners and encouraged them to “seize this opportunity. Be bold. Be brave. Challenge yourself. Remember always that you are ambassadors for your family, for your village, for Tonga.”
