This award, to be awarded annually to early career researchers, will recognise innovative Māori research with a high standard of excellence and a promising trajectory.

This award will acknowledge the dynamism that underpins both Te Ao Māori and Mātauranga Māori and be awarded for research that has the potential to shift boundaries and change directions of inquiry. Research in all subject areas is eligible for this award.

While other methodologies may also be used, the inclusion of Māori methodologies (both traditional and contemporary) in the research is an important consideration.

Nominees are encouraged to provide information that clearly demonstrates the impact of their research within their specific disciplinary fields and/or to the broader area of Indigenous research.

They may include evidence of creativity or innovation in their work and its significance at community, local, national and/or global levels.

This award will normally be only awarded to one person per year.
