Friends of the Hocken Collections Award

In 2016, the Friends established a research award of $10,000 to support a project on some aspect of the historical development of culture and society in New Zealand primarily using the resources of the Hocken Collections. The Friends fundraise regularly to continue making this Award.

Applications for the 2026 FOHC Award will open in mid-late 2025.
