Research Grants

Arthritis New Zealand 2017 Research Grants’ funding round is now open.

Closing date – 31 March 2017.

Arthritis New Zealand is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to enable a better quality of life for people affected by arthritis. Arthritis New Zealand works in the areas of education, public awareness, direct support, lobbying and funding research.

Arthritis New Zealand supports arthritis related research in New Zealand and annually invites applications for quantitative and qualitative research studies in the field of arthritis.

Arthritis New Zealand has a limited pool of funding to contribute to research projects and thus Arthritis New Zealand is likely to be the sole funder only for small research projects or pilots for larger projects. It is unlikely that Arthritis New Zealand will fund more than $120,000 per project. However all applications will be considered on their merits.

Arthritis New Zealand now invites applications from people or organisations involved in arthritis related research for grants from the following funds for the period 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018.
