More scholarships and internships for Māori will be available through a series of partnerships being formed by Victoria University of Wellington.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Māori) Rawinia Higgins says more than 20 relationship agreements will be signed with iwi organisations, representatives of Māori trusts and other organisations at a ceremony at the university's Te Herenga Waka Marae next week.

They will bring to more than 60 the He Herenga Tangata agreements formalised with iwi since 2016 to boost opportunities for Māori students and foster research collaborations.

Professor Rawinia Higgins says the university matches the funding provided by Māori partners dollar-for-dollar, to maximise the study and research opportunities for Māori students.

Next Wednesday's event also marks the presentation of the Te Tini a Rehua awards, which are given to the top Māori undergraduate student in each faculty.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
