The Hood Fund is a special fund that has been created to mark Dr John Hood's Vice-Chancellorship at The University of Auckland.

It aims to enhance the interaction between University staff and leading international talent in order to retain our leading researchers, and to attract the best international research talent to our university.

The Fund will provide:

  • Travelling Fellowships to enable selected academic staff to undertake short-term research at prestigious international institutions.
  • Visiting Fellowships to enable overseas academics to challenge and inspire research at The University of Auckland.
