2020-22 Scholarship on HOLD

The Ngati Whakaue Education Endowment Trust Board in conjunction with Toi Ohomai and MDA Experiences are proud to support the Ngati Whakaue Education Endowment Adventure Tourism Scholarship Programme. This scholarship is established to assist Ngati Whakaue descendants to obtain employment, training and junior leadership positions within the Adventure Tourism industry and obtain the qualifications listed below.

UPDATED February 2020

Regrettably, low interest in the qualification programme has resulted in minimal enrolments for Semester 1, 2020 (in Certificate in Outdoor & Adventure Education at Mokoia campus).
