Grant categories and applications

The purpose of the Foundation is to improve the health of New Zealanders through funding the highest quality medical research of all kinds.

The AMRF’s research funding area is limited to all recognised tertiary institutions and district health boards (DHBs) in the greater Auckland and Northland region of New Zealand. The principal investigator/grant holder must be affiliated with a host institution within this area, and the majority of work should be undertaken within this area, but co-applicants can come from, and part of the research can be performed, outside our catchment area – either nationally or internationally.

Several categories of funding are available. 


Please refer to the specific guidelines for each funding application and check the submission dates. Please note that host institutions may have earlier internal deadlines.

Applications can be made through the Auckland Medical Research Foundation’s online portal.
