To contribute to increasing Māori postgraduate scholarship in law, the Borrin Foundation has partnered with Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga. A pool of $80,000 is available annually to support a Māori scholar to pursue a post-graduate degree in law at a New Zealand university or at an overseas institution.
The 2nd research profile in our Spinoff partnership series features a project led by Dr Shaun Awatere of Manaaki Whenua and an interview with Zak Horomia who speaks about the impacts he's observed from climate change to Hinemaurea Marae in Mangatuna, Uawa.
