Māori Excellence Awards Morning Tea
Not be mistaken with the National Māori Academic Excellence Awards which acknowledges Māori PhD students, the 2013 Māori Excellence Awards here at Waikato are scholarships which are available to Māori students from undergraduate through to PhD. The awards are designed and administered between the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor Māori and the Scholarships Office and are only awarded to returning students. In addition to Academic excellence the criteria also catered for Cultural and Community involvement and financial hardship. However, all students had to have a Bgrade average or higher. 39 fortunate students met the criteria. This event provided a space to acknowledge these students personally and more importantly, to hand over their cheques. Congratulations to all the 2013 recipients.
If you think you might qualify for these awards next year, keep an eye out for our 2014 round of scholarships toward the end of the year.
