Diversity and inclusion by design

December 9, 2021: News

Warren and Mahoney has further demonstrated its commitment to supporting diversity in the architecture and design profession by increasing its offering of scholarship support for Māori and Pasifika students.


Commencing in 2022, Warren and Mahoney is providing two scholarships to Māori or Pasifika students who are commencing their Masters of Architecture programme at the University of Auckland. The practice is also offering a scholarship for a Māori or Pasifika student starting their Masters programme at the Victoria University of Wellington in 2022. This scholarship sits alongside two existing scholarships offered to Masters-level students at Victoria.

In addition, this year, Warren and Mahoney has become a Scholarship Partner with the charity ‘First Foundation’ that supports students into tertiary studies who may not otherwise be able to attend, through the provision of financial support, work experience and mentoring. Specifically, the initiative will support an aspiring architecture student into study at the University of Victoria in the new year.

“Warren and Mahoney is committed to increasing the diversity of our workforce and supporting the communities in which we work,” says Warren and Mahoney Managing Director, John Coop.

“In conjunction with our recent scholarship with the First Foundation, we’re very pleased to be partnering with the University of Auckland and the Victoria University of Wellington to provide mentorship and financial support for dedicated and talented architecture and design students.”

Applications are now open for the Warren and Mahoney Masters Scholarship for Māori and Pasifika students at the University of Auckland. Details of the scholarships can be found here.
