Continuing a proud tradition of investing in and supporting Māori graduate scholarship to create new dynamic international opportunities, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is pleased to announce its most recent award recipients, in partnership with Fulbright New Zealand.
The Fulbright-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Graduate Award is granted to promising New Zealand graduate students, in order for them to undertake one year of postgraduate study or research at a US institution in the field of Indigenous development.
Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga is once again developing new seed and scope research projects that contribute to our research themes:
- Whai Rawa
- Te Tai Ao
- Mauri ora
- Te Reo me Ngā Tikanga Māori
We are looking to develop and commence projects that contribute to our outcomes and vision, by providing a small contestable fund through our network that will initiate excellent research that has transformative potential.
NPM Researcher Associate Professor Melinda Webber from the University of Auckland was elected a general councillor onto the Royal Society Te Apārangi Council in late May.
Melinda is a former Fulbright-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Scholar who has published widely on the nature of Māori identity. Her research examines the ways race, ethnicity, culture and identity impact the lives of young people, particularly Māori students.
NPM's Pūrongo Ā-Tau Annual Report was presented at NPM's May 2018 Board Meeting and Hui-ā-Tau (Annual General Meeting) in Otautahi - Christchurch at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha - University of Canterbury last week.
Over two days our Board and collectivised network of 21 partners gathered together with the NPM Research Leadership Team, Principal Investigators and MAI coordinators to discuss our ongoing work, review the past 12 months, and continue our plans for the future.
This report showcases the expansion of our partnerships, collaboration and success throughout 2017, with newly launched research and the ongoing development of our foundational research and seed and scope projects.
