There are three Tohu Puiaki scholarships available, of up to $20,500 over 12 months, to candidates who are completing their thesis in English on Māori Language Revitalisation or are writing their thesis in Te Reo Māori on any subject.

Finally - we are entering the third round of our successful Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Kia Ita Masters Scholarships which are designed to support the advancement of Māori Language Revitalisation through building capacity and capability, opening up access to a knowledge base and increasing the number of Māori Masters graduates throughout New Zealand.

There are two Kia Ita Masters Scholarships available, valued at $10,000 over 12 months. As for the Tohu Puiaki scholarships, these Kia Ita opportunities are for Māori students who will be enrolled in a recognised Masters programme of study and research at a tertiary institution in New Zealand and are completing their thesis/dissertation in English on Māori Language Revitalisation or on any subject written in Te Reo Māori.
