TE TĀ HEMI HENARE SCHOLARSHIP

“Me pioke he āwhio mō te Kōhanga Reo, He taonga tuku iho nā te Atua, Te taonga e kore e ngaro, i ngā tau whakahuihui, i ngā tau takaoriori.” (Tā Hemi Henare) 

Upon the sudden loss of our prestigious Rangatira, Kōhanga Reo whānau throughout the motu expressed their wish to establish a scholarship in honour and memory of Tā Hemi Henare, who was a Patron of the movement at the time.  

The Trust, with collective contributions from Kōhanga Reo whānau throughout Aotearoa and the Māori Education Trust, supported the establishment of the capital fund that underpins this scholarship. The annual interest derived from the capital fund services the distribution. 

Each year, one (1) scholarship valued at $10,000 is awarded to a student studying at Doctorate PhD Level.
