A masters stipend and fees scholarship is available in the School of Environment.

The scholarship is funded by the RSNZ Marsden Fund project, titled Rethinking the future of freshwater in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The scholarship is intended to support a student to develop their masters research project to investigate how mātauranga Māori (Māori Knowledge) is incorporated into river management and restoration projects in a specific river catchment in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The student will be expected to undertake qualitative research alongside iwi-based restoration groups. Accordingly, some knowledge of Te Reo Māori is desirable. 

The Masters project is part of a larger project that examines the environmental histories of the Waipā River region and contemporary co-governance and co-management arrangements.

For further information, please contact Dr Karen Fisher, School of Environment, the University of Auckland.  

Applications close 22 February 2019.

Candidates must have permanent residency in New Zealand and the project must be undertaken full-time commencing in March 2019.
