Applications open for 2019-20 research funding

The Veterans' Health Advisory Panel (the Panel) is seeking applications from New Zealand-based researchers (individuals or teams) interested in undertaking research projects which improve the mental, physical, and social health outcomes of New Zealand veterans. 

The Panel has developed Guiding Principles for Investment (Guiding Principles) to attract proposals that demonstrate the research goals of,—

  • recognising a broad holistic view of health
  • having impact in terms of policy and practice outcomes
  • being relevant to New Zealand veterans, including Māori
  • focusing on contemporary veterans
  • where appropriate, aiming for collaborative partnerships and co-design.

A two stage application process is being used. 

Completion of the funding round process, from the public call for applications to contract signing, could take approximately six months. The deadline for Stage 1 inquiry proposals is noon, Tuesday, 28 January 2020. 

The research application pack includes information on:

  • the type of research we are seeking
  • the funding available
  • our two stage application process, including the Stage 1 inquiry proposal format (and template application form)
  • the Panel, and our role in funding research
