Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 7. 1965.
Want to go to Samoa? NZUSA is looking for students to form a research team in Samoa during August.
It won't be a holiday, though. The results of the research projects will be used in a seminar at Auckland University on the "Future of the Pacific" in May, 1966.
New Zealand businessmen are completely financing the venture. "In fact if the venture proves successful, the businessmen may support further research," NZUSA International Vice - President, Helen Sutch, told Salient.
Selections will be made first by local student executives and finally by the Planning Committee in Wellington.
All members of the Planning Committee have made specialist studies of aspects of Pacific Affairs.
The research teams will leave New Zealand in the last week of the second term, and will return at the end of the August vacation.
They will be encouraged to return to Samoa for part of the Christmas vacation to continue their work.
The 1966 seminar will explore present trends in Pacific development, spotlight problems requiring aid, and examine New Zealand's relationships with her Pacific neighbours.
