Fulbright - Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Travel Awards

The Fulbright-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Travel Awards in Indigenous Development are for New Zealand academics, artists or professionals to present their work to American audiences. 

A small number of awards, valued at up to NZD $5,000 each, are granted each year. These awards can go towards a 12 to 90 day visit to the United States which must include at least one major presentation, which contributes to one of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s research themes. 

Grantees are encouraged to maximise the impact of their award by supplementing their main proposed activity with other possibilities, such as including additional public talks, collaborating with American colleagues, and visiting sites of interest.

The closing date for the first round of awards is 5pm, Wednesday 1st April.

Further information and application forms can be found on the Fulbright New Zealand website
NPM Seminar Series Resumes

The 2015 Horizons of Insight Seminar Series is beginning again. This year we will be focusing on some of our recent Māori economic performance research projects, as well as enjoying powerful presentations from some of the countries newest Māori Professors. 

Running from March through to November, the NPM Horizons of Insight Seminar Series has been delivering high quality presentations and presenters to our community for more than 5 years. 

The Seminars themselves have been attended, watched and viewed online by thousands of people from all over the country and internationally.

The 2015 season commences on March 25th, when Dr Robert Joseph from the University of Waikato will give a seminar on his project Te Tētere Kōkiri o Te Ata: Optimising Economic Performance of Māori Land Trusts in the Waiariki Region.

Robert and his team are identifying sustainable and scalable models of active land trust management, which are designed to enhance the economic performance of Māori land trusts and identify models of collaboration to enhance economic performance.

This is a very opportune time to discuss these issues, when many land trusts are seeking to improve management of resources as well as enhance returns and improve their asset base and overall wealth.

Dr Robert Joseph's seminar, Te Tētere Kōkiri o Te Ata, will be held on:

Wednesday 25th March
12.30 - 1.30 pm
Waipapa Marae, 16 Wynyard Street,
University of Auckland

Nau mai! Haere mai! All are welcome!
Light refreshments will be available afterwards
