NHMRC Application Instructions

NHMRC applications must be checked by Research Services well in advance of the NHMRC external deadline to receive endorsement from the University to submit.

Note: Clinical & Affiliate Title Holders - full applications should be submitted through your Institution's Research Secretariat.

University Notification of Intent (NoI) Process

If you intending to apply for any NHMRC Grant you are encouraged to complete an NoI eForm. Submission of an NoI is mandatory for applicants to access any centrally coordinated grant development support or opportunities, such as grant writers and strategists. Other benefits of completing an NoI include:

  • Visibility at Faculty/School level.
  • Faculty support (where available), e.g. panel reviews, workshops etc.
  • Investigators enter the data once, which flows through to the University’s grant application and award processes.
