The Kingdon-Tomlinson Fund was set up under the will of the late Julie Annie Tomlinson of Nelson for the purposes of promoting the study of astronomy in New Zealand. The fund is a memorial to William Tomlinson of St Peter's School, York, (grandfather of Julie Tomlinson) and William Tomlinson (Julie Tomlinson's father), both of whom were Fellows of the Royal Astronomical Society, and were connected by marriage with Sir Isaac Newton.

Applications may be made for any projects or ventures which promote the progress of astronomy in New Zealand. Council of the RASNZ considers each application in accordance with the objectives of the Trust Deed and makes recommendations to the Trustees of the Kingdon-Tomlinson Fund accordingly. The Trustees of the Fund have the final decision as to whether or not a grant is made.

Applications will normally only be considered from members of RASNZ, its Affiliated Societies, recognised amateur astronomers in New Zealand or students of astronomy at recognised institutions.

Applications should be made on the official application form which can be obtained from the Executive Secretary of RASNZ from whom further information is available. Email enquiries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
