The purpose of this award is to provide an opportunity for the recipient of the award to do some short term tax policy related study overseas. The award will be granted to people who are likely to be future tax policy leaders.
While the results from the Tax Policy Scholarship Award will depend on the agreed programme, it is anticipated that the successful candidate will conduct some independent research, possibly with review by an overseas expert in the relevant area of research. This would assist in developing the candidate as well as fostering overseas networks. An overarching outcome should be a significant contribution to tax policy in New Zealand.
