NPM Grants & Awards

We are critically aware of the importance of sharing research outcomes with appropriate communities and audiences, user groups and stakeholders – our Māori communities especially – so positive change can be achieved. We also support student development and excellence and emerging researchers in the field of Indigenous research and build capacity and capability through our programmes, activities and with scholarships, awards and specific training initiatives.

Our comprehensive programme of Grants and Awards is for pre-doctoral through to early, mid-career and senior levels. All grants and awards are positioned to build excellent capability and expand capacity in all NPM research platform areas. While in the first instance, capability building is conducted in the context of NPM research projects and programmes, enabling younger and/or emerging researchers to participate with teams and receive research mentoring from our very best researchers, we have the range of awards as outlined below.

All grants and awards have formal application processes and assessment criteria - check each grant or award's criteria and apply online.
