How to apply

We employ a 2-stage application process.

The first stage is the Expression of Interest (EOI). The EOI form must be downloaded from this website (see Downloads). The EOI requires interested researchers to submit a high-level summary of your project. You will have approx. 6 weeks to do this. We will review all EOIs in order to select those that are of the most interest and then invite those applicants to submit a full grant application. EOI applicants who are not selected will be advised promptly of our decision.

In the second stage, successful EOI applicants will be emailed a grant application form. Applicants will have 6 weeks in which to submit their application.

Please read the Annual Grants Program guidelines (see Downloads) before applying.
