The Kā Pūtea Scholarship Panel comprising Lisa Tumahai, Liz Brown (Papatipu Rūnanga education rep) and James Caygill (GM Tribal Interests) met in early June to award the 2013 Kā Pūtea targeted and general scholarships.

The table below lists the 22 scholarships approved ($1,500 per scholarship). The remaining scholarship applications have been sent to Papatipu Rūnanga who will each allocate up to $1,500 (this may be split between more than one recipient).
