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.

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.
