Postgrad-internships-on-offer

Kaimahi and tauira have just two days to apply for one of four Kimihia Rangahaua postgraduate internships.

The internships are being offered to kaimahi and tauira enrolled in either Masters or PhD studies and who have a rangahau interest in te reo Māori revitalisation, reclamation and learning.

The six-month internships are worth up to $5000 each and will enable the recipient to be involved in He Rongoā tō te reo Māori – Te Reo Māori as a form of healing.

It is the flagship rangahau project for Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and received $60,000 in funding last year from New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga.

The project seeks to understand the barriers and motivators for learners of te reo Māori and aims to produce new teaching approaches.

It is the first time that rangahau internships have been offered and the initiative contributes to the ongoing building of rangahau capability, a key strategic objective of Te Rautaki Rangahau.

The successful applicants will be involved in data collection and analysis, reporting and writing on the study’s findings.

Dr Acushla Deanne Sciascia has been contracted as the lead kairangahau for the project and will also provide some informal mentoring to the interns.

Applicants must be enrolled in either Masters or PhD studies and have at least six months remaining in their programme. It is preferable for applicants to have a direct rangahau interest in te reo Māori revitalisation or learning.

Two $4000 internships are being offered for Masters students and two $5000 internships for PhD students. Internships must begin in June/July.

Applications are open now and close at 4pm on 26 May. For more information contact Dee on twoa.rangahau@gmail.com or go to https://goo.gl/FWVoFr Application forms are available at: https://goo.gl/forms/wejrmYCkaOWd2Bs32
