The Te Rangi Hiroa Fund was established in 1968 during the first Waigani seminar. The Fund was named after Sir Peter Buck, the distinguished Maori ethno-historian, and was administered by Secretary of the Fund Rev. Dr Sione Latukefu, of the University of Papua New Guinea History Department.

The Te Rangi Hiroa Essay Competition was an annual prize for:

(a) best essay on any aspect of Pacific history by an undergraduate student in any university in the South Pacific Islands;
(b) best essay on any aspect of Pacific history by an undergraduate student in any university outside the Pacific Islands.

The Paul Morawetz Award was a small scholarship available to assist Pacific Islanders with outstanding aptitude for historical work to pursue post-graduate studies in Pacific history.

Correspondence relating to the administration of the fund, submission of essays and awarding of prizes; submitted competition essays; applications for the Paul Morawetz Award.
