Māori Education Trust Scholarships

18 December 2019

We are delighted to announce, in partnership with the Toitū Māori Kaupapa Mātauranga (Māori Education Trust), a range of scholarships for Māori students at NorthTec for 2020.

  • Four scholarships worth $3,000 ($1,500 per annum for two years) to Māori students who have completed the first year of the Bachelor of Social Work at NorthTec. These scholarships will be awarded to applicants based on both academic merit and financial need.

  • Six scholarships worth $3,000 ($1,500 per annum for two years) to Māori students who have completed the first year of the Bachelor of Nursing at NorthTec. Priority will be given to students with financial need.

  • Twelve scholarships of $750 each to Māori students enrolled on the New Zealand Certificate in Commercial Road Transport (Heavy Vehicle Operator) (Level 3), aimed at students who are in financial need.

Students must apply directly to the Māori Education Trust, by Friday, 3 April 2020. Details of eligibility and supporting information required can be found on the application form.

The Māori Education Trust is the successor to the Māori Education Foundation, established in 1961 to assist with the education of Māori. The Trust administers scholarships on behalf of donors and in 2020 has more than 500 scholarships available to secondary school students, those studying for an initial tertiary qualification and those receiving assistance to undertake post-graduate study.

Since its establishment, the Trust has awarded almost $60 million to Māori students, enabling students to more actively participate in education than they may have. The Trust is pleased to be able to work with NorthTec and offer the three new scholarships, comprising 22 individual awards.
