This land-based young Māori Leadership Programme is taking scholarship applications for their 2020 intake.
Unleash the Maui Agricultural Leadership Programme is the signature training programme of the Red Meat Profit Partnership and Whenua Kura Trust. This multi-disciplinary national programme brings together promising leaders from the Aotearoa agriculture, natural resources management and rural community sectors.
The programme seeks applicants who can demonstrate a serious commitment to strengthening Māori agriculture in Aotearoa through their work and/or volunteer activities. Priority is given to applicants who work directly in agriculture (e.g., livestock, forestry, agriculture) or agriculture industry support endeavours (e.g., processing, handling, shipping, and delivering products to the consumer, or financing and management). Other primary industry workers who work closely with agricultural communities, as well as those involved in rural community development, are also invited to apply.
All applicants must be Māori. Applicants must have approval from their employer to take the required time to participate in the programme.
