2025 Judith Binney Fellowships and Writing Awards

The Judith Binney Trust is pleased to announce that applications for the 2025 Judith Binney Fellowships and Writing Awards will open on 13 May 2024. 

If you are interested in applying please visit www.judithbinneytrust.org.nz for further information about the Fellowships and Awards.

Please note the slightly earlier timeframe than in previous years.

Applications close at 5pm on 5 July 2024.  The Fellowship and Awards are scheduled to be announced in October 2024 for tenure in 2025.

The Judith Binney Fellowship is available for an established scholar to undertake or complete significant research. Writing Awards are for emerging scholars, or for the beginning or completion of a project.

The Fellowships and Writing Awards support research and writing on New Zealand history or associated topics. This might include: social history; women’s history; Māori history and tradition; recent economic or political history; and historical interests arising from New Zealand archaeology, anthropology, and material culture.

The Judith Binney Fellowships and Writing Awards honour the contribution made by the late Dame Judith Binney/ Te Tōmairangi o Te Aroha to our understanding of New Zealand’s rich history. Projects that connect to Judith Binney’s areas of interest or reflect her commitment to scholarly rigour alongside powerful new analyses will be welcome. Forward-looking ideas or approaches, topics of contemporary relevance and interest, and research in new or under-used archives or other sources, and projects that highlight and engage mātauranga Māori, including Māori and iwi sources and methods, are encouraged.
