To be eligible for one of these grants, you'll need to be a New Zealand citizen or hold residency in New Zealand, and be of Māori descent. Your application should be hosted and led by an iwi, hapū or other community based group or organisation. It may involve a partnership with a larger research entity (e.g. university), but it must be clearly driven by the needs and focus of the community or community organisation.
