New funding for 2019!

The Aotearoa New Zealand Science Journalism Fund is pleased to announce its fourth funding round, and the only one for 2019. There is a funding pool of $21,500 available for science topics that are of public importance and that might not otherwise be covered. Topics include sea level rise, New Zealand’s resilience to earthquakes, building better homes on better land, and contemporary science issues in the public interest. Responding to feedback, this round also includes an ‘open’ science topic. Thank you to our 2019 funders: Te Pūnaha Matatini, the Earthquake Commission (EQC), QuakeCoRE, and the NZ SeaRise programme.
