Two WRITERS RESEARCH grants are now open for applications for writers working on a project that can utilise the considerable facilities and resources of the Auckland Museum Library as part of the manuscript’s development. These grants are offered by the Auckland Museum and NZ Society of Authors and can be used for fiction and non-fiction projects.

The NZSA / Auckland Museum Research Grants 2016 grants comprise:

  • One National Grant of $4,000 supplemented by the option of 4 weeks funded accommodation at the Michael King Writers’ Centre in Devonport.
  • One Auckland Regional Grant of $2,500 for writers from the Auckland region.

The Auckland Museum Library provides a reading room and copying facilities for grant recipients as well as guided access to the library’s collections of manuscripts, pictures and publications. Both recipients will receive a one-year membership to the Auckland Museum Institute, benefits of which include access to the Members’ Lounge.
