Sorry but dependents are not covered by the current NZAID Scholarship; only single scholarships awarded now. It actually stopped in 2010 and you are unfortunate to miss this opportunity to bring your family over. Bringing family to NZ is quite expensive unless you have enough money to cover their travels, medicals, visa, and the NZ High Commission will insist on insurance for your family's safety and health. Education for kids in NZ is about NZ$10,000.00 for one year (fees only) for one child in intermediate school, high school will be much higher. It is not easy to get your spouse paid employment while in NZ..it takes time less chances especially coming with a PNG gained degree (talking from experience). Hope this helps you in your planning. Hope this helps. Naiko, New Zealand.
