Cranfield School of Management, through partnership with the Hui Taumata Trust, is offering new scholarship for New Zealand Maori. Up to two scholarships will be awarded annually to outstanding New Zealand Maori to study Cranfield’s one-year, full-time MBA programme.
The Cranfield scholarship of £14,000 (approximately $40,000) covers half the tuition fees, with the Hui Taumata Trust committed to helping accepted students to find the remaining costs. The scholarship is open to anyone of New Zealand Maori origin who is committed to empowering Maori economic development and who intends to return to work in New Zealand within reasonable time after completion of the MBA.
Director of Cranfield’s one-year, full-time MBA programme Sean Rickard said the Maori scholarship builds on the strong relationship that has developed over 40 years between Cranfield and New Zealand.
“This scholarship will not only reinforce the international diversity of our MBA students – there are currently 33 different nationalities on the programme – but also enrich the learning experience for students and faculty.”
Sir Paul Reeves, the chair of the Hui Taumata Trust board, said the scholarship offers Maori great opportunity to gain skills, knowledge, and networks from prestigious school.
“This enriching experience can then be applied at all levels across hapu, iwi, entrepreneurship and business, leadership and governance. This will benefit Maori economic development – and New Zealand’s.”

Short-listed applicants will be interviewed in New Zealand or the UK by selection panel consisting of representatives from the school and the Trust.
