A Taonga from Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu


October 4 2006

A Taonga from the late Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu

Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) launched the Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu Nursing Scholarship in loving memory of Dame Te Atairangikaahu.

Hera White, Wintec Pouārahi – Māori (Director – Māori) said the scholarship was first announced in March this year when Wintec bestowed its highest honour, a Fellowship, on Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu at Turangawaewae Marae.

The scholarship will enable a Tainui student to undertake a three-year nursing degree with fees being paid by Wintec for the three years. In each of the years following, a new scholarship will be offered.

Ms White said the launch of the scholarship was postponed during the ill health and recent death of Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu. She said consultation with and approval by family members meant that the $5,000 per year scholarship could be offered for the first time now for entry next year.

The three year scholarship allows the recipient to undertake full time study in Bachelor of Nursing (Direct Entry), Bachelor of Nursing (Registered Nursing), Bachelor of Midwifery, Postgraduate of Diploma in Nursing or a Post-Graduate Diploma in Nursing (Māori Mental Health).

Scholarship applications are available before February 9 2007 from Wintec or 0800-2-Wintec
