Toloa Programme

28 Samoans in NZ receive scholarships under Toloa Programme

The recipients will pursue studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).  

Minister for Pacific Peoples, Aupito William Sio said more Pasifika are embracing STEM opportunities, paving a pathway to educational success.

Now in its sixth year, the Ministry for Pacific Peoples (MPP) Toloa Programme is achieving its goal of helping Pacific Aotearoa to thrive.

“Our aim has always been to see Pacific communities in Aotearoa prosper, and encouraging more people into STEM-related study and jobs is a way to do this,” said Minister Sio in a statement.
