New Zealand History Research Trust Fund

The fund is open now and closes on 15 October 2022.

Whiria Te Mahara New Zealand History Grants, funded by the New Zealand History Research Trust Fund, support historians, researchers and writers working on non-fiction projects that will significantly enhance our understanding of New Zealand’s past.

About the fund

Every year the fund gives away 8-12 grants of up to $12,000 each to fund research and writing costs. We usually receive around 60-80 applications. Applications close on 15 October every year, and all applicants will be notified of the outcome by early December.

These History Grants are administered by the Ministry for Culture and Heritage. A committee of senior historians from outside the Ministry recommend who will receive funding.
