Margie Agalid won a two-year Asian Development Bank (ADB) Scholarship in 2009 to study at The University of Auckland. She has completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts and is now part-way through a Master of Arts in Development Studies focusing on regional trade between the Philippines and Samoa.
“Development studies is a small group,” she says. “But a lot of the students are from other countries so it’s a good opportunity to learn about international issues. There's also loads of research material which I hadn't realised existed up until now."
The ADB Scholarship is for postgraduate students from Asia and the Pacific and includes coverage of tuition fees, a living allowance, health insurance and a book allowance.
Margie, originally from the Philippines, believes scholarships like the ADB are especially good as they enable students from developing nations to study postgraduate degrees outside their home country.
“When I go home people always ask me, 'How did you get that scholarship?' I tell them: 'The internet. Go to the university website where you want to study and then look at the lists of the scholarships and find out the requirements for each.'
“A lot of information about scholarships doesn't get to students who live outside the main centres,” she explains. “But hopefully now with the internet, students will be able to access information that they couldn't before and take advantage of the opportunities that going to a university like this offers.”
Applications for the 2014 round of the ADB Scholarship close 20 July 2013.
