Māori Education Grants

This year’s theme for our Māori Education Grants is Taku tū ki te ao, meaning to explore and realise your contribution to the world. There are two categories.

Tūhuratua, whakaarohia, auahatia!

This grant is designed to support the recipients to be proactive in the exploration and realisation of an idea that will expand the learning and thinking of whānau, hapū and iwi around the Taku tū ki te ao theme. The vision and creativity of successful applicants will impact positively on learning and education for Māori, and nurture the potential in generations to come.

Innovation and Indigenous Research Grant

Maria Tibble
This grant is in memory of our late colleague Maria Tibble, who inspired those she met to be innovative thinkers and consider ways to honour indigeneity. It will be awarded to one recipient who proactively demonstrates innovation in exploring and implementing marau ā-kura, providing an opportunity for schools and kura to honour the cultural narratives of the precious land and spaces they dwell.
Applications are open now and close Friday 31 January 2020.
