Depth and diversity focus of Hauora Māori Scholarships

Depth and diversity focus of Hauora Māori Scholarships

Applications open today for health scholarships designed to provide opportunities for Māori in the health and disability sector.

Announcing the opening of applications for Hauora Māori Scholarships 2018, Associate Minister of Health Jenny Salesa says the scholarships are a great opportunity for students and health care workers committed to training and excellence.

"These scholarships offer support to assist students to achieve, and to excel in their chosen health career,” Jenny Salesa says.
She says enhancing and encouraging Māori representation in the health workforce is hugely important so that the system responds effectively to the needs of Māori.

“From community health workers, to dentistry, dietitians, health management and more, these scholarships provide for a range of exciting opportunities.

“The New Zealand health system will benefit from the depth and diversity of recipients.”

There are 11 scholarship categories and three special award categories: the Excellence Awards, the John McLeod Award and Te Apa Māreikura Award. The scholarships and awards range in value from $1000 to $10,000 each.

To be eligible for a Hauora Māori Scholarship, applicants must be a student enrolled and attending a university, polytechnic, wānanga or private training establishment based in New Zealand and have whakapapa and/or cultural links with Te Ao Māori or Māori communities.

They must demonstrate a commitment to and/or competence in Māori health and wellbeing and be studying a health or disability-related, NZQA accredited course.

Online applications open at 5pm today (14 February) and close on 28 March.

HiveMind: Fair Enough? How Should New Zealanders Be Taxed? - Have Your Say

Scoop and PEP invite you to share your issues, ideas and perspectives on the NZ tax system with other New Zealanders using Scoop’s HiveMind tool. This Tax HiveMind is intended to complement and feed into the review being run by the Government-appointed Tax Working Group (TWG), which is looking at the fairness, balance and structure of the tax system with a 10-year time horizon.

We at Scoop and PEP believe that an issue as important as the fairness of the tax regime should be open for discussion, debate and dialogue. Unfortunately, a written submission process just doesn’t encourage the kind of public exchange we think is necessary in a well-functioning democracy. More>>
