The popular NPM Summer Internship programme is open for submissions once again!

In recent years more than 50 students from across the country have been offered the opportunity to engage with senior academics on projects of national significance and gain real research experience, and money, by working over the summer months as research interns.

This internship programme is designed to provide experience and support for Māori students who are interested in pursuing research.

Five individual Whāia NPM Doctoral Excellence Scholarships are being offered this year by NPM.

These scholarships are valued at up to $28,000 per annum (+ course fees of $7000 per year) and are for Māori doctoral students to undertake study within one of NPM’s research themes. They are designed for candidates who have recently enrolled or are intending to enrol in a recognised doctoral programme of study and research within one of NPM's Partner Institutions.

NPM announced and launched over $1 million of project development initiatives and post-graduate assistance at the start of September, together with and for its NZ wide research partners and network.

These opportunities will continue to advance Māori research excellence and extend our ongoing programme of delivering innovative and transformative research that contributes to positive change in our communities and the nation as a whole.

Decisions made on the marae, and within iwi corporations and Māori-run businesses affect who gets to enjoy the fruits of the burgeoning Māori economy, which is now worth more than $40 billion.

Te Mana Raraunga - the Māori Data Sovereignty Network advocates for Māori rights and interests in data to be protected as the world moves into an increasingly open data environment.
