Request for Proposals Now Open

NPM recently announced its intention to develop, seed and scope new research which falls within its research themes - and submissions for this fund are now open.

Our goal with this opportunity, is to contribute to the centres outcomes and vision via a small contestable fund, and to develop new research projects that have transformative potential. 

We are now seeking proposals that support research collaborations between our extensive network of Māori researchers, and which will achieve our collective aspirations and each of the proposed projects must be innovative, inspiring, and lead to impact.

  • Kia Tō Kia Tipu; Seeding Excellence
    Up to $25,000 and for no more than one year duration. To seed development, inform research through literature, engagement and collaboration.
