Grants funding for local research

In September each year we invite researchers in the neuromuscular field and postgraduate students, to apply for research funding.  We have limited funding available and have set a range of guidelines to assist applicants and trustees with the application and grant making process.  

We have recently revised our research priorities.  Applicants should note that translational research that aims to improve health outcomes for New Zealanders with neuromuscular conditions will be given priority.  

Research of a preliminary nature with the intention of developing further proposals for substantial financial support from elsewhere will also be considered.

Due to limited funds, applications of $20,000 or less are advised.
