Tertiary Achievement in Pacific Ako Awards
Tenure: One year
The Tertiary Achievement in Pacific Ako (TAPA) Awards was established to encourage Pacific students to pursue tertiary studies at the University of Waikato. The awards are funded through the support of the Equity Grant administered by the Tertiary Education Commission.
The awards are open for applications from domestic-status Pacific students who are or will be enrolled in either part-time or full-time undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate level.
Preference may be given to applicants from areas of study where Pacific students are underrepresented.
Successful candidates will be chosen based on academic achievement, personal character and cultural and community involvement - especially that with a pacific focus.
