Scholarships will be available to students studying in any field at any Tertiary Institution e.g. Polytechnic, Wananga or University.
Who is Eligible?
The scholarships are open to all Maori but in line with the Maori Soldiers Trust Act 1957, where practicable preference will be given to descendants of Maori World War I veterans."Maori World War I Veteran" means a Maori who has served overseas during the First World War as a member of any of the armed forces of the Crown. Information about your Tipuna's WWI service may be found in the publication' Te Hokowhitu A Tu' by Christopher Pugsley. Your local library should have a copy. Alternatively the online Auckland War Memorial Cenotaph Database is a good source of information. Please note that eligibility is not a guarantee of success.
