The Vision Mātauranga science programme, in partnership with Victoria University of Wellington, is offering two scholarships of up to $20,000 each to support Masters [by thesis] projects. The scholarships have been established to build cross-disciplinary research capability and capacity in global change studies.

In order to meet the emerging demands of increasingly complex social, economic, political and bio-physical system changes facing Māori and wider Aotearoa/New Zealand society, projects are sought that will contribute to the following four Vision Mātauranga programme research themes:

  • Understanding climate change – linkages, pressure points and potential responses
  • Exploring adaptation options for Māori communities
  • Assistance to Māori businesses to aid decision-making and long-term sustainability
  • Products, services and systems derived from mātauranga Māori
The closing date for applications is 27 October.
