Established in 1985 by funds gifted by Dame Joan Metge, the Kākano Fund is primarily for Masters students majoring in social and cultural anthropology who are completing theses or dissertations. We also consider PhD students if funding permits. The Fund provides financial assistance towards thesis production costs and/or costs involve in presenting a paper at a conference. The second round of applications for 2016 will open later in the year.
