Using land income for grants and scholarships

Many land owners and trustees are committed to educating the next generation, and supporting kaumatua and Māori communities. They may decide to use some or all land income to fund grants for kaumatua, or scholarships for owners or their whānau (eg contribute towards textbooks or course fees).

Managing grants & scholarships

Grants: We can help set up grants on behalf of land owners and trustees. We also ensure that all grant recipients meet the criteria you've set.

Scholarships: We manage scholarships on behalf of trusts. This might include advertising the scholarship, receiving applications and notifying applicants of the outcome.

Sir Apirana Ngata Memorial Scholarships

Applications are accepted between January and the end of April each year.

The Sir Apirana Ngata Memorial Scholarship is a scholarship that we manage on behalf of the Māori Soldiers Trust. It's funded by the trust's major asset, Hereheretau Station, and aims to promote higher education among Māori. The scholarships are:

  • generally between $1,000 and $3,000.
  • open to all Māori studying at a polytechnic, wānanga, university or other tertiary institution – but preference is given to descendants of Māori who served overseas during World War I.

To apply for a Sir Apirana Ngata Memorial Scholarship, download the application form PDF and post it to the address supplied on the form. The form will be available between January and the end of April each year.

If you need more information, or would like us to post you an application form, send your name and postal address to us by email: mstscholarship@tetumupaeroa.co.nz
