Our Mission

Promotion of educational exchange between the United States and New Zealand to strengthen science, technology, and business relationships. The United States New Zealand Educational Exchange program has been established to enable corporate and individual supporters of both countries to contribute to annual fellowships for advanced research, study and work training as part of an overall bilateral education program.

Corporate sponsorship for branded awards are welcome. The Craggy Range winery in New Zealand together with Kobrand Corporation and Air New Zealand are multiyear supporters of the first United States and New Zealand educational exchange internship.


The United States New Zealand Educational Exchange program is a partnership between the American Australian Association and the Kiwi Expat Association (KEA). More>>
