NPM 2021-2022 New Horizons Raumati Internships Confirmed

This year's 2021-2022 New Horizons Raumati (Summer) Internship Programme is about to start with another outstanding group of aspiring emerging Māori researchers.

This summer they will be working with NPM Researchers from around the country engaged in an exciting range of projects that align to the NPM Matakitenga research programme and contribute to the mission of NPM which is to create the foundations for flourishing Māori futures.

We congratulate all the confirmed recipients, who will be researching throughout the summer to deliver a series of highly anticipated research reports early in 2022.
