Call for project proposals from NPM researchers to host and supervise a NPM New Horizons Summer Internship

The Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Māori (NPM) Futures Programme supports promising Māori senior undergraduate, post graduate and doctoral students as a means to growing an expert and capable Māori researcher workforce for Aotearoa New Zealand. The programme is about growing tomorrow’s Māori research leaders who are able to set and pursue strong research directions to produce knowledge, foundational to building a flourishing future for Māori. Our internship programme is a successful and long-standing strategy that NPM uses to achieve this goal. Some of our earlier interns have pursued doctoral and post-doctoral studies; joined impactful research teams in the National Science Challenges; found academic or professional research roles in organisations like Universities and Crown Research Institutions; or founded their own research consultancies. Ours is an excellent programme.

If you are a NPM researcher based at any of our NPM partner entities and wish to submit a project proposal to host and supervise a New Horizons Summer Internship please refer to the guidelines and application form attached.
