Two CLL/NZSA Research Grants are now open for application from writers of fiction or non-fiction.

Two CLL (Copyright Licensing Ltd) NZSA (New Zealand Society of Authors) Research Grants are now open for application from writers of fiction or non-fiction.

The first of the grants 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), as well as the $3,500 award.

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.
