University Challenge 2016

Page updated 23 May 2016

The Treasury is giving New Zealand university students the chance to address some of the most important public policy issues facing the country.

The Treasury University Challenge aims to:

  • Give university students a feel for the range of work the Treasury does
  • Allow students to test their analytical skills on real-life policy issues
  • Reward excellence in public policy analysis

Students are invited to write essays (2,000 words) addressing one of four pre-set questions and submit them to the Treasury.

The questions cover a wide range of social and economic policy issues, so students of any year level and discipline can enter.

The author of the best essay will receive a $2,500 grant to aid them with their studies.
