NTRC Scholarships open – “I pursued a ground-breaking area of law”


Kā Waimaero, Ngāi Tahu Research Centre is offering scholarships for postgraduate study in 2017. Scholarship recipients may be studying any discipline at UC.

Rachael Harris tells us about the difference the scholarship has made .

Cant Mag, Rachael Harris, Law, investigating Crown/Maori co-governance, 3.10.13

“Kā Waimaero, Ngāi Tahu  Research Centre (NTRC) scholarship allowed me to pursue a Masters in Laws researching a ground-breaking area of law – legal personality for natural objects and the realm of co-governance. While I was studying, the scholarship meant I could afford to focus all my time and attention on my topic.

As well as financial aid through the Scholarship, the research centre provided invaluable moral and cultural support and encouraged me to travel to conferences, and to attend Select Committee hearings relevant to my research.

Having an LLM has propelled me into interesting and fulfilling jobs in the Legal Industry, and I would encourage anyone considering doing a Masters in an area relevant to the goals of the research centre to apply for a scholarship.

The NTRC is a special and supportive environment to make your journey into postgraduate study.”
