The ANLHS has received a generous gift from South Auckland law firm Kayes Fletcher Walker to the Kercher Scholarship fund. Kercher scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit to postgraduate students for help defraying the cost of attending and presenting at the annual ANLHS conference.
The generous gift from Kayes Fletcher Walker will enable an additional Kercher Scholarship be awarded when an applicant meets one of the following criteria, in addition to the general criteria set out in relation to the Kercher scholarship. An additional Kercher scholarship may be awarded to a post-graduate student whose research project:
- addresses Indigenous people and legal history; or
- engages Mātauranga Māori or another Indigenous knowledge system; or
- adopts kaupapa Māori or another Indigenous research methodology.
