On Tuesday 31 October & Wednesday 1 November 2017 NPM will once again be hosting its popular Science Media Savvy - Media Skills for Māori Researchers workshop - and this time it is in Christchurch.

This highly-acclaimed media and communications workshop is run by the Science Media Centre and continues the approach followed over recent NPM sessions in Dunedin and Auckland over the past two years.

The new publication, Precarity: Uncertain, Insecure and Unequal Lives in Aotearoa New Zealand has strong links to NPM's Whai Rawa research theme and ongong work, as well as a selection of our researchers and investigators, including Dr Bridgette Masters-Awatere, Dr Natasha Tassell Matamua, Dr Shiloh Groot, Dr Mohi Rua and Professor Darrin Hodgetts

Do not think that this letter is from a man. No, I am a woman who wrote this letter.

He aha te mea te taonga? Ko te taonga he mea ka tū hei tuakiri mō te whānau, hapū, iwi rānei me ō rātou whenua tipu.
What exactly are taonga? A taonga can be any item, object or thing that represents the ancestral identity of a Māori kin group (whānau, hapū or iwi) in relation to particular lands and resources.

The popular NPM Summer Internship programme is open for submissions once again!

In recent years more than 50 students from across the country have been offered the opportunity to engage with senior academics on projects of national significance and gain real research experience, and money, by working over the summer months as research interns.

This internship programme is designed to provide experience and support for Māori students who are interested in pursuing research.

Five individual Whāia NPM Doctoral Excellence Scholarships are being offered this year by NPM.

These scholarships are valued at up to $28,000 per annum (+ course fees of $7000 per year) and are for Māori doctoral students to undertake study within one of NPM’s research themes. They are designed for candidates who have recently enrolled or are intending to enrol in a recognised doctoral programme of study and research within one of NPM's Partner Institutions.

NPM announced and launched over $1 million of project development initiatives and post-graduate assistance at the start of September, together with and for its NZ wide research partners and network.

These opportunities will continue to advance Māori research excellence and extend our ongoing programme of delivering innovative and transformative research that contributes to positive change in our communities and the nation as a whole.
