The LIANZA Scholarships Working Group recently reviewed all scholarships and awards. In response to current financial constraints they made the recommendation for future grants and awards to be funded from bequests only. The Rua Mano Scholarship is one of only two scholarships funded directly by LIANZA and was granted from 2002-2014. The last time it was awarded was in 2016, despite being well-promoted by Te Rōpū Whakahau and LIANZA.
Te Rōpū Whakahau and LIANZA Council greatly value their partnership and want to salvage the Grant. We jointly decided to re-purpose, rather than cease offering, this scholarship. The newly-named Rua Mano Grant aims to encourage and support both LIANZA and Te Rōpū Whakahau members to strengthen their knowledge of te reo Māori, tikanga and Mātauranga Māori by providing a subsidy to attend the Te Rōpū Whakahau Hui-a-tau. We encourage members to apply by the due date of May 30.
