Te Ara Whānui Scholarship recognises the importance the University of Waikato assigns to fostering, developing, and protecting excellence of Māori, and kapa haka, kaupapa Māori, tikanga, reo and/or mātauranga Māori.
Te Ara Whānui can be translated to mean the broad pathway, and is taken from the saying, Te Ara Whānui a Tāne. This is the pathway Tāne climbed into the heavens to seek knowledge, which he returned to earth as a treasure for all people. It is fitting, therefore, that this Scholarship provides a platform for Māori students to strive for excellence in a programme of study at the University of Waikato and to awaken and widen knowledge of Māori.
Please ensure you read the 'Guidelines on Applying for School Leaver Scholarships' before you commence the application process.
