Partnered Education Institutions

The Maōri Education Trust has had the opportunity to work with many tertiary institutes over the years with the hopes of providing as many students with scholarships, in an effort to support them during their studies. Our partnerships with universities across Aotearoa allow us to offer more scholarships, and also provide other opportunities to further students education and life after graduation. At this stage, we have partnered with four universities, listed below, we hope to add to our list of tertiary institution partners as we continue to grow.

Students who apply for a scholarship with the Māori Education Trust, and are also attending one of the following universities, have the opportunity to receive unique scholarships or additional funding.
