Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Research Internship Programme

This internship programme is intended to provide experience and support for Māori students interested in pursuing research and building their research capability and capacity.

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. Fifteen internships will be available for the period December 2016 through to the end of February 2017.

There are two stages in the internship process:

  1. Invitation to our NPM Investigators to submit an internship project proposal - Project proposals were due by 31 August
  2. Invitation to Māori students to apply for a internship project - Student applications NOW OPEN BY 22 September 

Stage One: Invitation to our NPM Investigators to submit an intern project proposal

The proposal is for a project that will be carried out over a ten-week period i.e. during the summer holiday break from December 2016 to February 2017. The project is to be carried out by an intern (student) under the supervision, and with the support, of the NPM Investigator/s.

To propose an internship project, Investigators are to submit below a project outline and description (2 pages maximum) using the Internship project proposal template (download below).

Internship project proposals are now closed.

A project assessment and selection process will then take place and at least 15 internship project proposals will be advertised on the Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga website by Monday 19 September 2016 for students to review and apply to undertake. 


We ask that Investigators draw this internship programme to the attention of potential students and encourage them to apply.
