MNHS Research Mentoring Program 2022 – Applications Now Open

Funding, Prizes and Awards – 5 July 2022

MNHS Research Mentoring Program 2022 – Applications Now Open

Applications close on Friday 15 July

The MNHS Research Mentoring Program aims to match Level B/C academics with Level D/E mentors from a different School/discipline. This provides an impartial and cross-discipline mentor to share advice and experiences, and discuss future career goals and aspirations. The program has successfully run two cohorts to date and has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both mentees and mentors.

We are pleased to launch the 2022 round of the mentoring program and hope it will continue to complement any mentoring programs currently run at the School level. Mentees may also select a preference for gender and academic classification (e.g. clinician, basic science researcher) to ensure they get the most out of the program.

We encourage our Level D and E academics to sign up to be a mentor and to help support the next generation of up-and-coming academics within our Faculty. The MNHS Research Mentoring Program is an annual program and the 2022 round will commence on 1 August. An introduction webinar hosted by Professor James Whisstock, Deputy Dean Research, for mentees and mentors will be held in August.

Click HERE for full information, eligibility, and how to apply as a mentee or mentor.

The Ryman Prize – Applications Now Open

Funding, Prizes and Awards – 28 June 2022

The Ryman Prize – Applications Now Open

Entries close 5pm Friday 15 July 2022

The Ryman Prize is an annual NZ$250,000 award for the world’s best discovery, development, advance or achievement that enhances quality of life for older people. The prize is awarded each year by an international jury appointed by The Ryman Foundation. The winner will be presented with the Ryman Prize Medal at a ceremony in New Zealand each year.

The prize, which consists of a cash sum of NZ$250,000 and a commemorative medal, was launched by the Right Honourable John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand, in February 2015.

The Ryman Prize is an entirely philanthropic initiative. It is independently funded, apolitical and the donor is anonymous.

The world’s rapidly ageing population means that in some parts of the globe – including most of the Western world – the population aged 75+ is set to triple in the next 30 years.

This large demographic change brings with it some chronic health issues including diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.

The intention behind the prize is to reward great work done, and also to stimulate fresh thought from the planet’s best minds into this area of need.

The Ryman Prize is open to anyone, anywhere in the world for work completed on an advance that has been proven to enhance quality of life for older people.

The prize could include, but is not limited to, a mechanical device, an invention, a discovery, a study, a book, an initiative, an invention, a proven idea, a completed research project or initiative or any other advance that enhances life for older people.

The prize is to reward work done – not for speculative projects.

The award can be made to an individual or a team.

Entry is by application or nomination.

Further information, including application form is available here.
