2022 Judith Binney Trust Awards

The Judith Binney Trust is pleased to announce that applications for the 2022 Judith Binney Fellowship and Writing Awards are open. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Sunday 22 August 2021.


The Fellowship and Writing Awards are scheduled to be announced in November for tenure in 2022.

The Fellowship Award  is available for an established scholar to undertake or complete significant research. The Writing Award is for an emerging scholar, or for the beginning or completion of a project.

The Awards support research and writing on New Zealand history or associated topics, including social history, women’s history, Māori history and tradition, recent economic or political history, and historical interests arising from New Zealand archaeology, anthropology and material culture.

The Awards honour the contribution made by the late Dame Judith Binney / Te Tōmairangi o Te Aroha to our understanding of New Zealand’s rich history. Projects that connect to Judith Binney’s areas of interest, or reflect her commitment to scholarly rigour will be welcome. Forward-looking ideas or approaches, topics of contemporary relevance and interest, and research in new or under-used archives or other sources, are encouraged.

Dame Judith Binney was a board member of the New Zealand Historic Places Trust from 2007-2009. She died in 2011.
