The Foundation develops and supports scholarship, fellowship and other programmes to support emerging Maori leaders in a range of fields
The Sir Hugh Kawharu Foundation has established a new scholarship in association with the University of Auckland Business School for emerging, entrepreneurial and professional Māori who wish to complete a masters degree in business. Further information is available from the Business School.
The Sir Hugh Kawharu Scholarship for Innovation in Science is a $10,000 scholarship for study at masters level in the sciences. The purpose of the Scholarship is to support and encourage masters level study by Māori in the sciences. Applications for the scholarship for the 2018 academic year have closed.
Sir Hugh Kawharu served as a member of the Auckland Museum Trust Board for 30 years, and was made a Fellow and Companion of the Museum in recognition of his service to the institution. The Sir Hugh Kawharu Scholarship at the Auckland Museum comprises a grant of $10,000 for a student (undergraduate or graduate) enrolled at a New Zealand university in an area of relevance to the Museum's collections or departments and is provided by the Foundation and the Museum. The Museum administers the scholarship.
