To be eligible, the applicant must've been a member of a branch of the New Zealand Chinese Association e.g. OSCA during the 2013-2014 financial year. This is normally achieved by family membership.

  3. Be a permanent resident of New Zealand.
  4. Be under 20 years of age on 1 January of the year following the completion of their secondary school education
