The annual Fulbright-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Graduate and Scholar Awards have opened for applications once again, and this year the scope and value of the Graduate Awards have improved considerably on previous years.

The Fulbright-NPM Graduate Award is for a promising New Zealand graduate student to undertake postgraduate study or research at a US institution in the field of Indigenous development.

In February 2018, NPM hosted our annual Principal Investigator Wānanga in the beauitiful Whakatū (Nelson) together with one of our partners the Cawthron Institute, and with support from the locally based Wakatū Incorporation.

This report describes the three days we spent in the region learning about the mana whenua, local economic development, discussing our research projects and also talking about how we can collectively help to share our research findings out to our wider network and local communities.
