PhD Scholarship in Māori River Restoration

18 May 2018

The Rivers Group would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the University of Auckland Marsden Grant PhD Scholarship in Māori River Restoration,which may be of interest to you.

This Scholarship was established in 2017 and is funded by a Marsden Grant awarded to academic staff members from the School of Environment at the University of Auckland.

The main purpose of the Scholarship is to support a PhD student to develop their research to investigate how mātauranga Māori is incorporated into specific river restoration projects along the Waipa River. Their research will involve the use of ethnographic methods and intensive fieldwork alongside iwi-based restoration groups. Accordingly some knowledge of Te Reo Māori is desirable.

Nomination is made to the Scholarships Office and the Scholarship will be awarded on the recommendation of the Selection Committee.
