NPM's ongoing partnership with Fulbright New Zealand is now in its tenth year. Since signing an agreement at Waipapa Marae in 2010 this partnership has enabled Māori academics to travel to the US to expand the scope of their research, create valuable connections and forge life long relationships with other Indigenous peoples internationally.

NPM Principal Investigator, previous Research Director, and University of Auckland academic Dr Dan Hikuroa (Ngāti Maniapoto, Waikato-Tainui, Pākehā) has been appointed to the position of Commissioner – Culture, on the New Zealand National Commission for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)

The internships require senior or mid-career researchers and students to work together to design an internship which will have relevance to Māori in the face of a fast changing and challenging Covid-19 environment.

Applications for these scholarships are open and close 16 June 2020. Selections will take place in the final two weeks of June and all scholarships start from July 1.
