Māori Summer Research Scholarships

The Centre for Biodiversity and Biosecurity (CBB) offered four summer research scholarships to Stage 1 students at the School of Biological Sciences (SBS) to:

  • Encourage Stage 1 Māori students to study ecology through exposure/participation in research in this field of study
  • Improve engagement of CBB staff with Māori students.

Successful applicants will:

  • gain new experiences, skills and knowledge in ecology
  • get to know staff and students in ecology 
  • receive a tax-free stipend of $6000.

Scholarship research projects are completed in a 10-week period from December to February, under the supervision of researchers from the School of Biological Sciences, Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research, School of Environment and Auckland Council (see list of projects below).

Students work on more than one project so they get a range of research experience – we do our best to make sure you work on at least one of your preferred projects.

The Centre for Biodiversity and Biosecurity will offer Māori Summer Research Scholarships again for 2023/2024. Watch this space for further details.
