CLL/NZSA Research Grants Open for 2012
Two CLL/NZSA Research Grants are now open for 2012 applications.
The first of the grants, for either fiction or non-fiction, will be for a fellowship at the Stout Centre in Wellington. This grant offers a study at the Stout Research Centre for up to three months, access to VUW facilities (Internet, printers, library, secretarial services, photocopying and the kitchen), in addition to the $3,500 award.
2012 Selection Panel comprises Julia Millen, Geoff Walker and Graeme Lay.
The open research grant, also for a $3,500 award for either fiction or non-fiction, will be awarded to a project-based application where the applicant is able to specify where the research is to take place.
In 2011 Joan Druett received The Stout Centre Research Grant for a project concerning the first 50 years of United States consuls in New Zealand, a period extending from about 1835 to 1885. While Tauranga author Jenny Argante received the Open Grant for research into the life of Dame Evelyn Stokes, a Bay of Plenty figure who was one of the first scholars to take seriously the connections between geography and culture.
Deadline: 1st July.
