Borrin Foundation launches EOI round for grant funding

14 March 2018

The Michael and Suzanne Borrin Foundation is seeking Expressions of Interest for the funding of legal research or education grants.

The Foundation was established by the late District Court Ian Borrin shortly before his death in March 2016, in memory of his parents. Judge Borrin left $38 million in his will to the Foundation, to support legal research, education and scholarship in New Zealand.

Five inaugural grants totalling over $1.76 million were announced by the Foundation last month.

The Foundation says its 2018 EOI Round is looking for ideas and initiatives that align with its vision, mission and guiding principles.

The round is a contestable two-stage process, requiring applicants to submit a brief EOI. If shortlisted, they will be invited to provide a more extensive proposal.

The process opened on 14 March 2018 and submission of EOIs will close at noon on Monday, 30 April 2018. Any questions or inquiries need to be submitted by 10 April.

Applicants are required to use an online EOI form which is on the Foundation's website along with further information.
