Applying for funding from the Children and Families Research Fund

The Children and Families Research Fund has one round per year. The 2019 funding round will be open from Tuesday 4 June 2019 to Friday 26 July 2019.

Selected projects will represent well-defined, quality research developed in response to government policy questions. We are particularly interested in supporting research proposals from institutions and/or researchers who are new to the fund.

The 2019 funding round has two categories:

  • Standard Research Grant: Up to $125,000 per proposal. Projects will demonstrate strong research capability, experience with working with longitudinal data, and involve close collaboration with government policy professionals.
  • New User Grant: Up to $50,000 per proposal. This category is focused on increasing the diversity of people using Growing Up in New Zealand (GUiNZ) data, and must be led by a Principal Investigator who has not previously conducted research using GUiNZ data.

All applications should be made using the official application form (available around 4 June 2019), include a completed application for Data Access, and email them to the research fund team.

Please note that all grants are dependent on applicants successfully applying for access to use GUiNZ data. This is a separate process, managed by the GUiNZ Data Access Committee.
