A new scholarship to help build Māori health workforce 

Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi has launched a new health scholarship programme in partnership with Te Aka Whai Ora (Māori Health Authority). Called Te Rau Wānanga, the scholarship will pay up to 75% of course fees and will be available to at least 25 students in 2024. 

Kaipūtahi – Manager Projects, Garner Gulliver, who leads the team responsible for administering the scholarship, says that the new initiative will make an important contribution to Awanuiārangi’s ongoing work to champion equity in the health system through its teaching. 

Te Rau Wānanga is designed to build Māori health workforce capacity by supporting students who are enrolled, or plan to enrol, at Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi. Selection priority will be given to students who are able to clearly demonstrate that their chosen course of study will make a contribution to Māori health development.” 

A range of bespoke Māori health support initiatives (such as wānanga, webinars and presentations) will also be available to scholarship recipients as part of the Te Rau Wānanga programme.  

Tauira in any year of study at Certificate to Postgraduate levels can apply here. Applications close on Thursday 15 February.
