Various post-primary and university scholarships are available for Maori students, and other financial assistance is provided by the Department of Maori Affairs and Trust Boards. In this respect the Maori Education Foundation encourages and assists increasing numbers of capable young Maoris to reach higher educational levels in both the academic and technical fields.
The future will undoubtedly bring important changes in administration, organisation, curricula, and methods of teaching, but the outlook for Maori education is a very promising one. It can be confidently anticipated that the passing years will record marked progress in every aspect of educational endeavour.
