Applications for the second round of funding from the Superu Children and Families Research Fund (the Fund) are now open.
The Fund is dedicated to funding policy-relevant research using anonymised data from the Growing Up in New Zealand (GUiNZ) study. It provides researchers with an opportunity to explore and shape social policy that supports children and their families, whānau and communities. Applications close on 20 October 2017. Funding totaling $750,000 is available in this round.
Superu recognises that researchers need to connect with GUiNZ data to help tackle key challenges that New Zealand children and their families face today. The Fund ensures that researchers have the access and funding they need to do this. The evidence produced as a result of the Fund will be released publicly so everyone can benefit. By helping to provide access to GUiNZ data, we aim to increase the use of evidence by people across the social sector so that they make better decisions.
GUiNZ is a longitudinal study which aims to address policy and practice questions that are relevant at a national level. The data is collected by the University of Auckland. You can find more information about the study on our GUiNZ web page.
