Funding possibilities in New Zealand

International Leader Fellowships supports incoming targeted international fellowships for exceptional individuals who are unable to obtain support through other means. The programme, a new initiative under Catalyst: Leaders, enables a Fellow to catalyse science and innovation capability and capacity development in New Zealand for a minimum of four weeks per year for up to three years. 

International Leader Fellowships are intended to support the attraction by New Zealand Research Organisations (the Hosts) of international fellows who can have a catalytic impact on the country's science capabilities and promote the importance of international cooperation in science.
