Calling future Māori leaders in the field of cultural heritage


A Sir Hugh Kawharu Scholarship at Auckland Museum is being offered for the first time. The $10,000 grant is available to any students of Māori descent, who are studying full-time at undergraduate or graduate level at a New Zealand university or Wānanga, and have an interest in cultural heritage. They are encouraged to apply by 31 May 2014.


The Sir Hugh Kawharu Scholarship at Auckland Museum – Tamaki Paenga Hira is offered by the Kawharu Foundation with assistance from the Auckland Museum.  The purpose of the scholarship, and indeed the Kawharu Foundation, is to support and encourage Māori leadership, particularly in the field of cultural heritage.


In addition to the grant, the successful recipient may receive the benefit of an academic mentor for the duration of the candidate’s studies. It is anticipated that the scholarship candidate will undertake a research project which will form part of their studies and contribute to the completion of their degree.


Sir Hugh Kawharu was an inspirational leader who was involved with Auckland Museum for more than 30 years as a Trust Board member guiding matters affecting Māori and enabling Māori aspirations.


Applications close on 31 May 2014. Go to www.aucklandmuseum.com/sir-hugh-kawharu-scholarship to download an application form.
