Ngā Pae o te Maramatanga: 2017 - 2018 Summer Internship Projects
Get paid to build your research skills and make a difference!
The popular NPM Summer Internship programme is open for submissions once again and Te Matapihi encourage potential participants to take a look at the programme; and more specifically at:
- Project 22 Māori-led education for sustainability - collective learning through observatories;
- Project 23 Te Manaaki o the Marae Research Project: The role of mare in the Tāmaki, Maori housing crisis; and
- Project 27 The Māori Identity and Financial Attitudes Study: Te Rangahau o Te Tuakiri Māori me Ngaa Waiaro ā-Pūtea.
In recent years more than 50 students from across the country have been offered the opportunity to engage with senior academics on projects of national significance and gain real research experience, and money, by working over the summer months as research interns.
This internship programme is designed to provide experience and support for Māori students who are interested in pursuing research.
As an intern you will work under the direction and guidance of a Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) Investigator on a research project aligned to the research themes and programme of NPM ... and over the coming summer at least 15 internships are available!
Ideally you will be a Māori pre-doctoral student who is genuinely interested in advancing their skills and capacity in Indigenous research. You could be an upper level undergraduate, a post-graduate, or enrolled in a Master’s programme, and if so this opportunity might be ideal for you.
The Internship Stipend for the 10 weeks of the programme is $5,500 (tax free).
There are 27 projects available for students to select from and your input will be used to match your application for an internship to a summer research project.
Make sure you apply online before the closing date of 18 October 2017
