Māori CoRE Full Funding Proposal to be Submitted

This coming Friday 27th February, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga will submit its full funding proposal for Māori CoRE funding to the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). This marks the final stage of a process which was set in train almost a year ago and into which a vast amount of people have contributed their time, scholarship and expertise. 

We are of course very pleased that we have had the opportunity to develop this full proposal and again would like to acknowledge the many researchers across the country who have contributed to the process. We will keep you all up to date with progress over the coming weeks. The TEC Board of Commissioners is expected to make the final funding decision by June 2015.
