E ai ki a Ngahiwi Apanui, Te Tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, “he $10,000 tāra te rahi o ia karahipi ‘Kia Ita’ nei hei tautoko i ngā rangahautanga kōrero mō te whakarauora i te reo Māori.”
He mea whakahaere ngā karahipi nei e Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, ā, e kī ana a Apanui “e whai ana te mahi tahi ki ngā Pūtahi Rangahau pēnei i Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga i te whakaaro nui o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori mō te rangahau nā te Māori tonu i ārahi. Ko tā mātou mahi ngātahi hoki mō ēnei karahipi e whai ana kia whakapakari i ngā mahi rautaki reo, whakarauora reo hoki a ngā whānau, hapū, iwi, hapori hoki.”

Ka tino hāngai hoki tēnei mahi tahitanga hou ki ngā whāinga mō te tautoko i te reo Māori me ngā tikanga ki roto i ā mātou mahi rangahau, ka tika hoki kia rahi ake te mahi tahitanga e tutuki ai ngā tūmanako o ngā hapori me te whenua katoa."
"Ko te reo me ngā tikanga Māori ētahi pou o te mātauranga Māori otirā te Māoritanga tonu. Hei pūmanawa hoki ēnei mea mō te hauora o te iwi Māori, ā, mā te mahi tahitanga hou nei e whakaatu te whāinga ngātahi mō te reo me ngā mahi rangahau."

NPM Director, Associate Professor Tracey McIntosh said that, “Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga is delighted to partner with Te Taura Whiri I te Reo Māori to offer these Masters level scholarships. This new partnership aligns well with our commitment to embedding Māori language, values and practices into the fabric of our research programme and activities and we are looking forward to deepening the relationship so that we meet the aspirations of our communities and the nation."

It will always be a critical component of Māori wellbeing and this new partnership demonstrates our joint commitment to both te reo and to research."
