Co-sponsoring undergraduate pathways for Māori and Pasifika students

Monday, December 20th, 2021

Bioprotection Aotearoa, is the latest co-sponsor of MacDiarmid’s Institute  Discovery Scholarships programme, that nurtures a pathway for undergraduate Māori and Pasifika students interested in STEM.

Through collaboration the most difficult challenges can be overcome.  Partnerships such as these, are important to lift representation and diversity in science and carve out a space that allows for indigenous knowledge and value systems to be embedded in the traditional structures of science and research.

Bioprotection Aotearoa is excited to awhi the next cohort of students for 2022, so they have access to scientific learning opportunities where they feel valued and continue to be inspired by a scientific future of discovery.
