Fulbright New Zealand Travel Awards

These awards, valued at up to NZ$5,000, are for New Zealand academics, artists or professionals to visit the US for 12 to 90 days in order to present their work to American audiences. Approximately twelve awards are offered each year. Recent grantees have included a filmmaker, an artist and academic experts in floral biology, citizen science and water quality, to present their work at conferences and lectures in the US.

These awards, valued at up to NZ$5,000, are for New Zealand academics, artists or professionals to visit the US for 12 to 90 days in order to present their work on a theme of indigenous development to American audiences. A small number of awards are granted each year. The most recent grantee, Vince Malcolm-Buchanan (Ngāti Pikiao, Ngāi Tūhoe) from the University of Waikato, will present his research into Māori traditions for memorialisation of the dead at the 2015 meeting of the Association of Social Anthropologists of Oceania in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
