Mission

The Te Ara a Kupe Beaton Scholarship honours the adventurous spirit of Kupe, a tribal warrior who journeyed across the seas and battled unfathomable obstacles to discover new lands, which we know today as Aotearoa New Zealand. 
We wish for young Maori students to embark on rewarding adventures of international studies that will allow the world to experience the unique brilliance of young Maori and to learn about the intricacies of Maori culture.

Crimson Education believes in the power of personalised education and mentoring. The program is designed to support students with resources that enable young New Zealanders to shine. This scholarship, the first of its kind in New Zealand, pays homage to the company's birthplace from which Maori culture plays a central part of the story.
