Small Project Proposal

The Latin America CAPE also welcomes proposals for small projects aimed at furthering its objectives:

  • More New Zealanders with appropriate language, cultural, and economic skills relating to the Asia-Pacific region
  • Enhanced public awareness of the importance of the Asia-Pacific region
  • Better understanding of how the study of Asia-Pacific languages, culture and society leads to success in the region
  • Enhanced links between New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region

The period for accepting project proposals for the 2019 Latin America CAPE work programme has now closed.

The Small Project Proposal template below is available for those considering submitting proposals for the 2020 Latin America CAPE work programme. The deadline for these is likely to be around October 2019
