The CatWalk Trust accept proposals aimed at advancing research towards a cure for spinal cord injury.
Each year we open a funding round on the 1st October for selection by 1st April.
CatWalk accepts proposals aimed at advancing research towards a cure for spinal cord injury. The Neurological Foundation of NZ undertakes the evaluation of all applications to the CatWalk Trust on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the aims of the Trust. All applications are submitted to a peer review process via the Neurological Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Committee.
The Neurological Foundation makes a recommendation to the CatWalk Trust on whether the application should, in their view be considered for funding. The final decision on funding is made by a completely independent CatWalk Grants Approval Committee.
We accept research projects based on:
- Biomedical or clinical research projects,
- A Post Graduate Scholarship for a NZ Citizen or Permanent Resident, to study towards a PhD ($25,000 annual stipend plus fees),
- A one or two year Post Doctoral Fellowship to be undertaken either in New Zealand or in an overseas centre of excellence (applicants should be a NZ Citizen or Permanent Resident)
