Te Hau Kāinga: Histories and Legacies of the Māori Home Front, 1939-1945

2019/2020 Summer Scholarships

 

Te Hau Kāinga is a University of Otago-based research project supported by the Marsden Fund to investigate Māori experiences within New Zealand during World War Two.   The project is offering three summer scholarships for 2019/2020 for Māori students in their second year or above in a New Zealand university.  The purpose of the scholarships is to enable a potential postgraduate student to undertake sustained research work over the summer period.

 

 

Under the supervision of the project leaders, successful applicants will get to design their own projects and outputs, in English, i roto i te reo Māori rānei, which may include (but not be limited to) a written history, waiata, exhibition, or artwork that can be shared with whānau. Alternatively, a successful applicant can choose to undertake research within one of our partner archive institutions. Summer scholarship recipients will also be involved in public initiatives designed to showcase the project to the wider community, including writing a blog post about their research.

 

Conditions

  1. Each scholarship has a value of $5,000 to be paid as a stipend in four installments directly to the student’s nominated bank account (see details of payment dates and conditions below). Extra funding for travel or other expenses will be available if required.
  2. The student is expected to contribute a minimum of 400 hours (or ten weeks) to the project.
  3. The approved research project will take place, exclusive of vacation time, between December 2019 and February 2020.
  4. All applications and associated documents must be submitted by Wednesday 13 November 2019. These will include: a brief curriculum vitae, an academic transcript, a one-page research plan, and contact details for two academic referees. Also attach a statement detailing any research experience to date.
  5. Ideally, the successful applicant would be a Māori student at 200 level or higher in 2019, who will be enrolling for study at Otago or another New Zealand university in 2020. Applicants with suitable skills and a background in the humanities and/or the social sciences are eligible. Students considering enrolling in a postgraduate degree, typically an Honours, Masters or PhD programme, are especially welcome to apply.
  6. Summer Scholarships are not to be used to fund student research being undertaken for credit towards a degree/diploma.
  7. The student must not be receiving alternative scholarship support for the same project or any other project over the same timeframe. The student may hold only one Summer Scholarship in total.
  8. Students who currently hold a PhD or Master’s Scholarship are not eligible for a Summer Scholarship. Students with one of these scholarships and who are on a deferral over the summer period are also not eligible for a Summer Scholarship.
  9. The studentship will be paid by the University of Otago Scholarships Office in three instalments of $1,500 with a final $500 payment in March providing a satisfactory report on the project is received no later than 28 February 2018.
