Te Whāriki Takapou: Māori Health Research Summer Studentship

May 31, 2019 at 2:30 PM

From Te Whāriki Takapou

Te Whāriki Takapou keen to assist Māori students to grow their research skills by undertaking a Māori Health Research Summer Studentship in 2020

Calling all Māori students in Aotearoa New Zealand who are interested in building their research skills in Māori sexual and reproductive health or Māori health and wellbeing. Te Whāriki Takapou invites you to consider applying for a Health Research Council-funded Māori Health Research Summer Studentship, worth $5000. The Summer Studentships are primarily aimed at undergraduate students studying health-related courses who have had little research exposure and want to undertake a Māori health research project over the summer break.

In the 2019 round, Te Whāriki Takapou assisted two young Māori women currently studying at Waikato University, Rebekah Lawrence and Te Aomarama Anderson, to embark on their Summer Studentship research. As the host organisation, Te Whāriki Takapou provided research supervision and training that enabled both young women to complete research reports that address significant health issues: Māori women and abortion (Rebekah), and rights-based approaches to achieving better Māori sexual and reproductive health (Te Aomarama).

Read more about Rebekah’s and Te Aomarama’s research topics

Applications for the 2020 round of Summer Studentships is now open and will close on 5 July 2019. If you, or any student you know, are interested in this opportunity and would like more information, or to discuss potential topics and the application process for this award, contact Dr Jillian Tipene at Te Whāriki Takapou.
