Emerging Leader Fellowship

The Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC) and the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) have established the Māori Mental Health Research Emerging Leader Fellowship to support high-quality research and Māori health research capacity in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

The Fellowship is intended to focus on the development of Māori mental health research knowledge, with a specific emphasis on equity and Māori health research processes that supports improving Māori mental health and the social care delivery system.

Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), the HRC and MSD (‘the funding partners’) are seeking to support an outstanding early/mid-career researcher whose proven track record demonstrates that they are an emerging leader in the field of Māori mental health and who propose to conduct research that fits with the scope and requirements of this RFP.

All the information you need to apply for funding under this initiative is now available here on HRC Gateway.
