The Borrin Foundation currently supports one summer legal research internship programme. Other scholarship programmes are under development. We expect to make an announcement in late 2018 about future funding of scholarships to support study by talented New Zealanders who share the Foundation’s commitment to serving the people of New Zealand through the law.
Promoting Māori legal scholarship among young people.
The annual Borrin Foundation-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) Summer Legal Research Internship Awards will enable two Māori tertiary students to research legal issues of relevance to Māori. The purpose of the internship programme is to promote Māori legal scholarship. The internships strongly connect legal research with legal practice. Each intern is supervised by a Māori academic in the NPM network of scholars and a practising Māori lawyer from Te Hunga Roia Māori o Aotearoa (the Māori Law Society).
Each internship is valued at $6500, including a $5500 stipend to the intern, plus $1000 for professional development, conference travel or other internship-related costs.
See Grantees and Alumni to see who the 2017/2018 Summer interns were.
