get help in path to top world universities
Five winning students have walked away with scholarships worth up to $20,000 each to work towards their desired universities.
Te Ara a Kupe Beaton Scholarship was founded in 2017 to encourage young Māori representation on the global stage, to push social equity initiatives and for Māori students to make a lasting impact on the global community.
It includes personalised mentoring and education services to help students get accepted into their dream course at their dream university – be it computer science at Stanford, medicine at Cambridge or business at Yale.
Mentors this year will include former NZ prime minister Sir John Key, and former Mount Maunganui College student Samuel Taylor who was awarded the scholarship in Year 10 and will be returning this year from Harvard University.
