Funding opportunities

UOW's Research Grants Calendar has been designed to provide the academic community with a forecast of upcoming funding opportunities being coordinated by the Grants Team. If you are intending to apply to any competitive research grant scheme, please email the RSO Grants Team Contact listed.

Research Professional is an online database of research funding opportunities. We encourage researchers to also use this tool to search for other funding opportunities specific to your fields of research and areas of interest and expertise.

If you have identified a research grant funding scheme that is not on the calendar, please email the Grants Team as soon as possible so that we can begin to work with you on the preparation of your application.

Please note: Applications to ARC and NHMRC possess their own internal timelines to which applicants must adhere. Key internal and external dates are provided in the Grants Calendar. Applicants should view the ARC and NHMRC webpages on our website for detailed information on internal and external timelines for these schemes.
