Preparing a Grant Application

All external research funding applications are to be lodged through REDI. This ensures legal and administrative requirements are met, including evidence for research workload negotiations.

We also employ a Grant Development Support Strategy and Process (PDF, 593.37 KB) (opens in a new window) which begins each year in April.

You need to submit your draft application to REDI Research at least five business days prior to the external closing date. In some cases this will be much earlier if there are restrictions imposed by a funding agency.

You also need to complete a Clearance Form (opens in a new window) (login required) prior to submitting your funding application.

Contact the Research Development Officer who specialises in your research area as early as possible so they can assist you with strategic advice, critical feedback, budget development and track record statements to maximise your chance of success.

You can find additional resources such as past ARC and NHMRC successful grant applications (login required) and a list of FAQs in the Grant Development Resource Library
