Purpose: For students interested in getting some real research experience, and working with senior NPM researchers over the coming 2019-2020 summer. The internship programme is intended to provide experience and support for Māori students interested in pursuing research.

Eligibility: Māori pre-doctoral students who are genuinely interested in advancing their skills and capacity in Indigenous research. You can be an upper level undergraduate, post-graduate, enrolled in a Master’s programme but cannot already have a PhD.
Internship Stipend: $5,500 which will be paid directly to the interns in instalments.
