Kia Ora Koutou katoa!


I trust you and your whānau are well as we gear up for a much needed break and quality time with our whānau over the 2023 Christmas/New Year season. 


I wanted to take the time to extend our thanks to our Taihonoa partners for partnering with us in providing amazing scholarship/grant and internship opportunities to our tauira Māori, studying here at Te Herenga Waka with us.  The Office of DVC Māori and Taihonoa extend our appreciation and best wishes to you all for the 2023 Christmas and New Year holidays.


Before I go, I wanted to share this opportunity that has come through the Scholarship office for tauira Māori wanting to study Science or Engineering.  This panui has been posted on various platforms already, but I am requesting you advertise and promote on your own Iwi/Hapu website in Facebook/Instagram so it can go wider to our tauira Māori leaving College, and looking to study with us.  Any assistance you can give us is much appreciated.


The information for posting out is provided below.  In anticipation, thank you very much for sharing this exciting opportunity to your Iwi and hapu for our tauira!


Noho ora mai!
