Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Research Internship Programme

INTERNSHIP PROJECT PROPOSALS CLOSED - Students can apply for Internships from 1st September to 18th October here 

This internship programme is intended to provide experience and support for Māori students interested in pursuing research and building their research capability and capacity.

The Interns will work under the direction and guidance of a Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) Investigator on a research project aligned to the research themes and programme of NPM. At least fifteen internships will be available for the period December 2017 through to the end of February 2018.

There are two stages in the internship process:

  1. Invitation to our NPM Investigators to submit an internship project proposal - Project proposals  due by 5pm 24 August 2017
  2. Invitation to Māori students to apply for a internship project - Student applications are yet to open. Notifications of this round will be advised once internship projects have been selected.

Stage One: Invitation to our NPM Investigators to submit an intern project proposal - OPEN NOW!

The proposal is for a project that will be carried out over a ten-week period i.e. during the summer holiday break from December 2017 to February 2018. The project is to be carried out by an intern (student) under the supervision, and with the support, of the NPM Investigator/s.

To propose an internship project, Investigators are to submit below a project outline and description (2 pages maximum) using the Internship project proposal template (download below).

Internship project proposals close 5pm August 24 August 2017

A project assessment and selection process will then take place and at least 15 internship project proposals will be advertised on the Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga website by 1 September 2017 for students to review and apply to undertake

We ask that Investigators draw this internship programme to the attention of potential students and encourage them to apply.
