They have been awarded Te Ara a Kupe Beaton Scholarship, which aims to support tauira Māori to gain entrance into the world's most competitive tertiary education providers.
Each student receives mentoring and education services up to $20,000 to help them gain entrance into their dream course at their dream university - helping them pave the way for more Māori representation within tertiary education on the word stage.
Lytton High head prefect Rhiannon Kapa wants to use the scholarship to become a dermatologist or clinical surgeon. She plans to use the skills she gets in her studies to help provide professional and culturally sufficient healthcare to her home in Te Tairāwhiti.
