Pacific Professional Development Fund

Read about the 2020 awardees.

Ako Aotearoa is committed to supporting Pacific staff and emerging Pacific leaders in tertiary education.

Our purpose is two-fold and aims to address the following priorities:

  • Supporting Pacific tertiary staff on their pathways to leadership positions through career development.
  • Building leadership capability, along with capacity, that becomes a stronger platform of support to grow greater Pacific learners’ success.

The scholarships are each worth between $2,000 and $5,000. The nominees' organisation is expected to provide an "in kind" contribution to match that being funded by Ako Aotearoa.
