Applications for the 2017 Tame Parata Scholarship are now open. The rūnaka has established the Hon.Tame Parata Scholarships for secondary and tertiary students who are members of our hapū. The scholarships recognise the ongoing active participation and contribution of our rangatahi to the future development of the hapū.

There are two categories – junior and senior. Each category is awarded a scholarship of $1,000 which can be used in further education such as school or university fees and/or resources, for example: a laptop or tablet.

Applications involve carrying out an assignment based on a question set by the He Korowai Whānau Committee. Go to our website:ūnaka Scholarships for the assignment wording and further details. Please contact the rūnaka office if you have any queries. Applications close 16 September and scholarships will be awarded to the successful candidates at an awards ceremony and dinner on Saturday 5 November at Puketeraki Marae.
