NHMRC Project Grants - Applications for funding commencing 2019

To begin the new capping arrangements under the restructured grant program, interim capping arrangements will be introduced in the upcoming Project Grant funding round.

Applicants will be able to submit up to two Project Grant applications in the final Project Grant funding round (deadline 14 March 2018). Applicants must continue to comply with NHMRC policy on the numbers of concurrently held grants (maximum of six). For example, if an applicant will hold five active Project Grants in 2019, only one Project Grant application can be submitted.
