Project Grants

The Foundation is pleased to announced its inaugural Project Grant scheme. The scheme has been designed to encourage early-career researchers conducting high quality research, to take ownership of a discreet research project. The intention behind this is to provide a stepping stone for up and coming researchers, that may be leveraged to build a career as an independent researcher. 

Funding - The award will provide $50,000 per year (ex GST) for two years, for project costs. Funding cannot be used to fund salary gaps, on-costs or Institutional infrastructure.

Application Dates - Applications open 1 August 2017 and close at 5pm AEST, 1 September 2017. Please note that any draft applications that are not submitted by the application deadline, will be removed from the application portal.
