Since 1971, Cure Kids’ mission has been to enable research to transform the health of children in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Over the past 50 years we have offered an annual opportunity for funding of high-quality paediatric research projects. Cure Kids welcomes all applications for innovative health research projects that are designed to either advance understanding of the cause of a health challenge affecting children, improve care for children living with the health condition, or develop a cure (e.g. to prevent or treat disease).

We encourage you to apply if you have an idea for a project which could advance the health and wellbeing of children, and particularly if it could address inequities in health outcomes. In 2022, we will consider Project Grants applications up to a maximum budget of $110,000 over 3 years.

Applications are open from 21st June 2022 and will close at 5pm on the 7th of September 2022, please click here to apply via our online portal.
