Funding round opening soon!

01 May 2019.

Each year $750,000 is made available for policy-relevant research using Growing Up in New Zealand data.

Applications for funding from the Children and Families Research Fund will open on Tuesday 4 June 2019. The round will be open until Friday 26 July 2019.

The fund is dedicated to exploring policy-relevant issues using de-identified data from the Growing Up in New Zealand study. The Growing Up in New Zealand study is New Zealand’s largest longitudinal study into child development and growing up in 21st century New Zealand.

The fund is open to applications from academics, public and independent research organisation, non-government organisations and government agencies. We are particularly interested in supporting research proposals from people and institutions new to the fund.

Researchers and policy professionals should look to co-develop research proposals to ensure strong policy relevance and high potential impact to New Zealanders.

There is introductory information on the fund webpages, which will be updated when the fund opens on 4 June 2019.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please email researchfund@msd.govt.nz.
