We are currently accepting applications for the GHA Scholarship. Consistent with our kaupapa-Maori focus, this scholarship aims to support greater Māori representation within the business community by proactively fostering and encouraging Māori into the accounting profession or wider business environment. We are seeking applications from Māori students who are keen to enter the accounting profession and are committed to the Chartered Accountants Australia New Zealand (CAANZ) pathway. In addition to this, we have extended our criteria to allow for applications from Māori students who are studying business with the intention of becoming Māori business professionals.
We have a total scholarship pool of $10,000 to be awarded to the right applicant(s). The minimum scholarship award is $2,000.
Scholarship recipients will receive payment in two instalments – the first being in line with semester one of the tertiary year and the second in line with semester two of the tertiary year.
- 5pm 30 November 2017
Who can apply?
We welcome applications from exceptional full-time Māori students who have demonstrated academic excellence, have an enthusiasm and commitment to work with Māori and are passionate about using their talent to benefit whanau, hapū and iwi.
Preference will be given to descendants of clients of GHA. If you require assistance with identification in this regard please contact us directly through the key contact listed below.
