On 12 & 13 June 2017 NPM will once again be hosting an Auckland based Science Media Savvy - Media Skills for Māori Researchers workshop. This highly-acclaimed media and communications workshop is run by the Science Media Centre and follows on from two popular sessions we held in Auckland and Dunedin in 2016.

Applications for the 2017 Wāhine Ora: NPM New Horizons for Women Trust Research Award are currently open.

This is an NPM co-funded research award of $10,000 with New Horizons for Women Trust (NHWT) and is focused at Wāhine Māori researchers. 

The Wāhine Ora Award aims to support research that benefits Māori women, girls and/or whānau in Aotearoa New Zealand, is made annually and is a one off grant to assist research and/or living expenses.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's 2017 Grants and Awards programme has been launched, and it is positioned to build capability and expand capacity across all of NPM's research platform areas.
 
Each of the opportunities below has a formal application process and assessment criteria - please check the grant or award's criteria and apply online.
Nei te hūpē te roimata e ringihia nei
Mō tēnei māreikura kua ngaro ki te pō
Ngarungaru Te Moana Nui A Kiwa
Tuohu mokemoke ai ngā motu katoa
E te mātanga a te kupu, E te ngākau nui tonu
Waiho mā āu pia pono tō ōhākī e hiki
Mahue mai mātou i te pūkatokato
E te Raukura haere, haere, haere atu rā
 

We are very proud of our scholars and students that have travelled and studied abroad through our successful partnership with Fulbright NZ.  This continues in 2017 with two awards, the Fulbright-NPM Graduate and the Fulbright-NPM Scholar Awards.

Over recent weeks Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga has hosted and engaged in deep discussion and relationship building at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland.

On Thursday 2 February and Friday 3 February NPM brought its researchers (Principal Investigators) together for a Research Wānanga focused not only on whakawhanaungatanga but also on fostering greater cohesiveness across and within our Te Reo me Ngā Tikanga Māori, Whai Rawa, Te Tai Ao and Mauri Ora research programme strategy.

2017 has begun and NPM is already busy with a host of opportunities emerging for our network, as well as new research, new challenges and exciting new prospects as the year ahead unfolds.

Te Pūwānanga’s Raumati (Summer) Issue includes stories and images from the recent NPM Conference, the announcement of the dates to our 8th Biennial Conference in 2018, an outline of the intentions behind our National Māori Research Strategy, links to our recently published Strategic Direction document, NPM’s summer interns who have already begun their summer projects, and other stories and announcements on the work and activities of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga.

Ko te haukai a te kairangahau Māori ko te reo Māori
Tāia, whakapuakina, whakatōkia kia puawai

The Māori language is the food of Māori researchers
Let it be written, spoken and implanted so that it will grow.

Applications have been called for the new ‘Tohu Puiaki - Doctoral Completion Scholarships’ which will offer up to $20,000 each to six people completing doctorates either in English on Māori Language Revitalisation, or who are writing their thesis in Te Reo Māori on any subject.

Waiho i te toipoto, kaua i te toiroa
Let us keep close together not far apart

We have reached the end of what has been an exciting, successful and busy year here at Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) - New Zealand's Māori Centre of Research Excellence.
