OPEN FOR STUDENT APPLICATIONS - GET PAID TO BUILD YOUR RESEARCH SKILLS AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE! 

Purpose: For students interested in getting some real research experience, working with our researchers over summer. The internship programme is intended to provide experience and support for Māori students interested in pursuing research.

The Interns will work under the direction and guidance of a Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) Investigator on a research project aligned to the research themes and programme of NPM. At least Fifteen internships will be available for the period December 2017 through to the end of February 2018.

Eligibility: Māori pre-doctoral students who are genuinely interested in advancing their skills and capacity in Indigenous research. They can be upper level undergraduates, post-graduates, enrolled in a Master’s programme but they cannot already have a PhD.

Internship Stipend: $5,500 which will be paid directly to the interns in instalments.

2017 Internship Projects: There are over 20 projects available for students to select from and at least 15 internship positions available. Your input will be used to match your application for an internship to a summer research project. To assist us with the allocation of projects to applicant (your application), please rank the projects which are listed below. Use a range of scores from 1 for the one(s) you are least interested in, through to 10 for the one(s) you are most interested in. Please use 0 for those that are not applicable to you (e.g. the project is not in your region or you would be unable to do the research required for some reason).
