InternetNZ spurs research with new grant

InternetNZ is on the hunt for applicants for a newly-launched grant for individuals and organisations doing research about the internet.

Each applicant can get as much as $20,000 from the total pool of $60,000.

InternetNZ invests up to half a million dollars annually in projects and partners that align with its objectives.

"Over the last 18 months we’ve assisted a diverse group of projects, from helping complete research around online Maori language usage to raising awareness of the barriers faced by blind and vision impaired people using the internet. This new grant is just a further extension of InternetNZ’s aims to improve Internet access and usage for New Zealanders, says CEO Jordan Carter.

Applications, along with a brief outline of the proposed research, are being taken until 6 December.

Shortlisted applications will be chosen to provide a detailed proposal.

InternetNZ is a non-profit membership organisation that aims to protect and promote Kiwi internet, and foster a cooperative approach to its development.
