2020 Grant Round

2020 Emerging Researchers Grant Round

The 2020 Grant Round closing date will be decided once NZ’s lockdown period is over.

When compiling your proposal, please be aware that the Grants Committee pays close attention to such matters as :

      • Aims of the research
      • Literature review
      • Methodology used
      • Sampling methods and size
      • Statistical methods
      • Contribution to knowledge
      • Research impact in the Waikato region
      • Development of early career researchers

The Foundation awards grants that contribute to the overall costs of the research project (however, no funding is available for overheads / travel / salaries / major capital items).

In general, grant applications in excess of $30,000 are not supported.
