Scholarships to learn value of Māori land
The Māori Trustee Te Tumu Paeroa and Lincoln University have teamed up to create scholarships for Māori students undertaking a Bachelor of Land and Property Management specialising in rural land valuation.
The two recipients of the $5000 scholarships will also have the opportunity to complete 12 weeks of paid practical work at Te Tumu Paeroa through a new summer internship programme.
Trust and property director Brae Watkins says Te Tumu Paeroa administers nearly 100,000 hectares of land across Aotearoa and works with rural land valuers and rural consultants to ensure Māori landowners are getting fair returns from their whenua.
The scholarship is part of its efforts to build Māori technical capacity in whenua management.
