Grant calendar

2022 Grant Calendar

Dates stipulated below are the internal University deadlines and the funder deadlines for the submission of your grant application. All grant proposals should be submitted through the Research Funding Module before the internal University deadline, unless stated below that the deadline is purely for funder registration, or that differing submission instructions apply. As a rule the internal submission deadline will be seven working days before the funders' to allow for University approvals to be granted and compliance checking of your proposal, before onward submission to the funding agency.

The calendar is continually updated throughout the year so please check back for up to the minute information. It includes the main New Zealand and international funders applicable to the Liggins Institute but the list is not exhaustive. If you are aware of an opportunity that is not included, please contact the Liggins Research Service Team to confirm deadlines and submission processes.
