If you're a graduate, proficient or fluent in te reo Māori, and you want to train to become a secondary teacher, this is a scholarship opportunity that could lead to a new, exciting and challenging career for you.

Your study fees paid plus an allowance for one year of study

The scholarships will cover core study fees and pay an allowance of $10,000 for one year of study. They are for people who will commence their study at the start of the 2017 academic year - but you must have started the process to enrol in an approved Graduate Diploma/Master of Teaching before applying.

We offer two types of Graduate Scholarships (Secondary) for 2017:

Tipu Whakarito Te Reo Māori - for people wanting to teach te reo Māori as a subject in secondary schools.

Te Waka Whakarei - for people wanting to teach a secondary subject in te reo Māori in wharekura.

Applications for the 2017 Graduate (Secondary) Scholarships opened 5 December 2016 and closed 7 February 2017.
