Increase your business's research and development capability with student grants.

Local businesses can now apply for Callaghan Innovation Student Research and Development Grants.

The grants are designed to help businesses access fresh talent through providing student internships. Two student grants are available for local businesses to apply for  - the R&D Career Grant and the R&D Experience Grant. 

 

R&D Experience Grants –  Now open

The R&D Experience Grant is an internship for tertiary-level students, designed as full-time work experience during the student summer break. Eligible businesses will receive funding of $9,460 (plus GST) for 400 hours of full-time work upon proof of your payment to the student.

 

R&D Career Grants – Now open 

The R&D Career Grant is an internship for recent PhD or masters graduate students, designed to bridge the first six months of employment-gaining work experience. Businesses can apply for a career grant as soon as they identify a suitable student and receive the student's annual salary costs for the first six months.

Funding is limited, so get in touch with a Trust Tairāwhiti business growth advisor to get ahead of the crowd, or visit Callaghan Innovation for more information.
