Purpose of award
The purposes of the award are to
Enhance New Zealand’s research capacity and support sound public policy by encouraging students of Māori descent to learn to understand quantitative research, and set them on a track that will allow them to become quantitative researchers.
Provide promising students with career guidance and mentoring from top researchers.
Build networks between researchers and future leaders.
Motu Economic and Public Policy Research Trust is offering a $1,000 scholarship to a student of Māori descent who intends to study economics and is planning to enrol in a second year econometrics course, or equivalent quantitative economics course.
There will be one Āheitanga Scholarship for each university. Where multiple candidates from one university apply, Motu will assess student’s academic achievement and interest in economics or a related field. We will also be guided by advice from the university on the student’s involvement in mentoring and links to their cultural heritage.
