Research grants

EQC supports the development of new knowledge with two grants programmes – one for experienced as well as emerging researchers and the other for promising post-graduate students. Since 1989 we have supported almost 300 research projects and over 100 post-graduate students with our grants. 

EQC Biennial Research Funding Programme 

Biennial grants are open to experienced and emerging researchers who meet our criteria.

We invite applications within the first three months of each odd-numbered year. Proposals to the value of $70,000 or less are preferred with project duration up to two years. The programme is being reviewed however we expect to call for applications around March-April 2017, for 2018. 

EQC University Post-Graduate Grants Programme 

These grants are for projects undertaken by New Zealand university post-graduate students that meet our criteria.

The current funding pool is fully subscribed. However, normally, we welcome applications at any time. Preference is for requests of up to $20,000/year with project duration up to three years.
