Manaaki Committee and Grants

Ngāti Pāhauwera Development Trust is pleased to announce, for the tenth consecutive year, that funding for Education & Community grants is now OPEN from the 1st of February 2023 to the 19th of March 2023.

The Manaaki Committee has been fortunate enough to provide funding for the previous nine (9) years and has been made available to the beneficiaries of Ngāti Pāhauwera to support whānau aspirations in both Secondary (boarding) & Tertiary Education and provide much-needed support to the Community.

This year the Trust is excited to announce that it has partnered with Te Herenga Waka at Victoria University. This means that any current or prospective student that receives a Manaaki Grant this year, Te Herenga Waka will match that grant at the same value – dollar for dollar. This a fantastic opportunity for our members to take advantage of.

The Committee will be expecting a large interest this financial year and would take the opportunity to thank all the applicants in advance for taking an interest in the communities’ development as well as caring for the future of our beneficiaries’ educational aspirations.

Please see below for the appropriate application forms below in either: Secondary Education, Tertiary Education and Community Grants.
