Maori organisations offer more scholarships

7:19 pm on 4 November 2013

Two more Maori organisations are to offer study scholarships to Maori students.

The deal, between the Māori Education Trust and Te Tumu Paeroa will distribute the profits from farms in Waikato and Wairarapa, to Māori, in the form of study scholarships.

Māori Education Trust manager, Evelyn Newman, says the strong business base and farm expertise of Te Tumu Paeroa will help maximise the capability of the farms.

She says more profit will mean more scholarships, and more benefits for whanau, hapū and iwi in terms of education and employment.
