The purpose of the Tuākana Contestable Fund is to support the University's Māori and Pacific postgraduate students or potential postgraduate students who:

  • Have been selected to present academic research papers at a national or international conference, wānanga, symposium, fono or another related event; and have the support of their academic supervisor.
  • Would like to attend their first conference, wānanga, symposium, fono or other related event and will not be presenting papers (considered on a case by case basis).
  • Are potential postgraduate students in their final year of undergraduate study who wish to attend and/or present at conferences (considered on a case by case basis).
  • Priority will be given to first time applicants of this fund.
  • To ensure that all students have the opportunity to access this fund, there is a limit to support up to two students - attending the same conference from the same faculty. 

Please email Naomi Fuamatu (n.fuamatu@auckland.ac.nz) for any further enquiries.
