Maori Fulbright scholars sought
Fulbright New Zealand is keen to get more applications from Maori musicians, writers and other creative people.
The Fulbright programme promotes cultural and educational exchanges between New Zealand and the United States.
Last year 14 of the grants went to Maori.
Executive director Dr Mele Wendt says there are more than 50 different awards and she’s keen for Maori to submit research proposals.
"You know it’s a variety. It can either be related to a Maori kaupapa or totally not, go an do some topic of social science research or maths," she says.
Dr Wendt says there is a strong group of former Maori Fulbright scholars who are willing to assist anyone considering applying.
