Tāwera Scholarships

Business / Management Undergraduate Scholarship

The Trust thanks those who have made application to our scholarships fro 2017, these are now closed. 

The Tāwera Scholarship is offered to Māori completing a bachelor degree in business, management, or commerce. There are up to 30 scholarships of $10,000 each and recipients are required to attend the Ngā Whetū Hei Whai: Charting Pathways for Māori Industry Futures Conference.

Launched in 2011, the Tāwera Scholarship is designed to help address Te Pūtea Whakatupu Trust’s strategic focus on lifting the level of Māori participation in middle and senior management capability in a range of industries, including fisheries. Te Pūtea Whakatupu Trust is concerned to ensure the potential of the Post Treaty Settlement Era is maximised by leveraging capacity and capability building to support greater Māori control and involvement in decision making in Māori industry futures.

The celestial being, Tāwera (Venus as the morning star), was a primary star used for celestial navigation by the first voyagers from Hawaiiki to Aotearoa. Similarly, it is hoped this scholarship will help guide our rangatahi developing their Māori business and industry skills back to a role in Māori industries and Māori economic development with whānau, hapū and iwi. Tāwera is also the brightest celestial being in the night sky after the moon. Similarly, we hope our scholarship recipients will shine brightly as stars in the future success of Māori in middle and senior management of our key Māori entities.

It is envisaged that the recipients of this scholarship will be committed to the future economic and social development of Māori, iwi, hapū and whānau.
