In collaboration with the University of Otago Division of Sciences, the Deep South Challenge’s Vision Mātauranga science programme is offering two Master’s Scholarships.

The scholarships have been established to build cross-disciplinary research capability and capacity in global change studies to help 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 research themes:

Theme 1

Understanding climate change – linkages, pressure points and potential responses

Theme 2

Exploring adaptation options for Māori communities

Theme 3

Assistance to Māori businesses to aid decision-making and long-term sustainability

Theme 4

Products, services and systems derived from mātauranga Māori*
