Kupe Scholarships recognise highly accomplished Māori and Pacific student teachers
29 Māori and Pacific student teachers have been awarded prestigious Kupe Scholarships in recognition of their high academic achievement and leadership potential, at a ceremony hosted by Associate Education Minister Kelvin Davis in Parliament today.
The Kupe Scholarship, worth over $22,000, aims to attract highly accomplished Māori and Pacific students to the teaching profession and support them to become inspiring teachers in early childhood, primary and secondary education.
The Kupe Scholarship funds course fees and provides an allowance, and also offers mentoring support through the programme, and recruitment support after graduation.
