The Reserve Bank of New Zealand Māori and Pacific Islands Scholarship

Applications are now open for the Reserve Bank of New Zealand 2015 Māori and Pacific Islands Scholarship. The closing date for applications to be submitted is 21 January 2015.

The Māori and Pacific Islands Scholarship in Economics, Finance and Banking has been developed as part of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's Equal Employment Opportunities programme.

The purpose of the Scholarship is to encourage Māori and Pacific Island students to pursue studies in the field of economics, finance and banking studies. The Reserve Bank’s objective is to increase the number of Māori and Pacific Island students with tertiary qualifications in economics, finance and banking studies to honours level, and thereby increase the numbers of these students employed in policy departments within the sector.
