Charles Fleming Senior Scientist Award

Annual research grant worth up to $10,000 to support the research of a senior scientist at a university, Crown Research Institute, polytechnic or other research organisation in New Zealand, and that of their research group.

Decisions as to whether to support a senior scientist will be taken by the Royal Society Te Apārangi Council.

The fund will give preference to requests for research expenses over and above those that a university or Crown Research Institute in New Zealand would normally be expected to cover. Examples include expenses to:

  • cover a visit to an institution in New Zealand or overseas;
  • expenses related to specialist assays or methodologies;
  • research assistance to carry out a specific task; or
  • expenses relating to a visit to the research group of a visitor.

Funding will be provided each year as long as funds are available.
