Rosemary Seymour: Research & Archives Award

In 1974 Rosemary Seymour, a Waikato sociologist, initiated a newsletter and a network of women interested in women’s studies, that evolved into the Women’s Studies Association (NZ). In 1985 this fund was established in her memory. Donations are always welcome. The fund will enable us to make two awards of $1000 each, one for which only Māori women may apply, while the second is open to all women. Women’s groups may also apply for either award. Applications should include:

  1. Name
  2. For Māori applicants: iwi and hapū, or geographic region;
