We are very proud of our scholars and students that have travelled and studied abroad through our successful partnership with Fulbright NZ. This continues in 2017 with two awards, the Fulbright-NPM Graduate and the Fulbright-NPM Scholar Awards.
Over recent weeks Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga has hosted and engaged in deep discussion and relationship building at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland.
On Thursday 2 February and Friday 3 February NPM brought its researchers (Principal Investigators) together for a Research Wānanga focused not only on whakawhanaungatanga but also on fostering greater cohesiveness across and within our Te Reo me Ngā Tikanga Māori, Whai Rawa, Te Tai Ao and Mauri Ora research programme strategy.
Te Pūwānanga’s Raumati (Summer) Issue includes stories and images from the recent NPM Conference, the announcement of the dates to our 8th Biennial Conference in 2018, an outline of the intentions behind our National Māori Research Strategy, links to our recently published Strategic Direction document, NPM’s summer interns who have already begun their summer projects, and other stories and announcements on the work and activities of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga.
