COVID-19 funding application

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Aotearoa New Zealand Science Journalism Fund is offering an expedited funding round with a simplified application process for projects related to COVID-19.

Funders are asked to contribute to a funding pool, which will be distributed at a set rate of $2,500 per successful application. Applicants can submit a more detailed proposal if they wish to apply for between $2,500-5,000 of funding.

The first round of funding closed on Thursday 30 April. There will be further application rounds if funding permits.
