Ebba Te Tua Scholarship
The Ebba Te Tua Scholarship is a tribute to the life and work of respected Mangatawa kuia and teacher - the late Ebba Te Tua. Whaea Ebba taught at Arataki School in Mount Maunganui for nearly 30 years and established the school’s bilingual/Māori immersion unit. The purpose of the scholarship is to support the professional and educational development of Mangatawa uri (descendants) who have chosen to pursue a career in education and in particular are committed to the revitalisation of Te Reo Māori, a kaupapa that was dear to the heart of Whaea Ebba. The scholarship is managed by the Mangatawa Papamoa Blocks Incorporated (MPBI) and jointly funded by Generus Living Group (GLG) and MPBI Partnership.
