Fulbright New Zealand and Nga Pae o te Maramatanga, New Zealand’s Indigenous Centre of Research Excellence, call for applications to a range of awards for New Zealand graduate students, academics, artists and professionals to undertake academic and cultural exchanges to the United States of America in fields of indigenous development. A Fulbright exchange provides life-changing opportunities to gain international experience and advance your career, to explore America, to share your culture and to make friends and colleagues from around the world. Grantees undertake an exchange to their choice of leading American universities, including Native American, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian-serving institutions renowned for their indigenous study and research programmes.

Travel Awards have been granted to health professional Pefi Kingi, Cindy Kiro (Ng?puhi, Ng?ti Kahu, Ng?ti Hine) from Massey University and Te Kawehau Hoskins (Ng?ti Hau, Ng?puhi) from the University of Auckland to present their respective research at various conferences and universities in the United States.
