Co-funding arrangement with the Michael and Suzanne Borrin Foundation
Since 2018 the Law Foundation has been co-funding some grants with the Borrin Foundation. Our collaborative relationship included a commitment from the Borrin Foundation to contribute up to $150,000 a year to co-funded projects with the New Zealand Law Foundation. Any co-funded grant existing as at 31 July 2020 will be honoured by the Law Foundation and the Borrin Foundation.
From 1 August 2020 after the Law Foundation goes into recess, we suggest you apply to the Borrin Foundation as a potential source of funding for your research projects.
