Revamped CLNZ/NZSA Research Grants Open for 2014

Revamped CLNZ/NZSA Research Grants Open for 2014


Four CLNZ/NZSA Research Grants now open for 2014 applications.

CLNZ and NZSA are delighted to announce that applications for the revamped CLNZ/NZSA Research Grants are now open. Following feedback received from writers in 2013, the value of each grant has been increased to $5,000 and the number of available grants increased from two to four.

One of the four grants is supported by the Stout Research Centre at Victoria University in Wellington. The Stout Research Centre generously offers its facilities for a period of six weeks during October/November.

SRC offers a lively research environment for postgraduate students, international scholars and independent New Zealand researchers and writers – a great place to be while you utilise your CLNZ/NZSA Research Grant!


Last year the grants went to Dunedin writer Laurence Fearnley for an experimental project with the mountaineer Lydia Bradley and Auckland writer Witi Ihimaera for a ‘literary whakapapa’—or a biography/memoir.

Deadline: Thursday 31st July 2014

Application forms are available from both the CLNZ and NZSA websites at:

http://www.copyright.co.nz/Awards/Research-Grants/ or www.authors.org.nz

Applications must be received by 5pm, Thursday 31 July 2014. No late entries can be accepted.
Send applications to: CLNZ, PO Box 331488, Takapuna, Auckland 0740
