Non-ACGR scheme applications must comply with UNSW's policy for pricing and indirect costs

Many philanthropic Funds and Foundations provide funding for university research. In cases where research grant funding is awarded via an advertised competitive application round, the submission of applications is managed through the GMO, which will also manage the grant once awarded. See 'managing research income from philanthropic funding schemes' for further information.

UNSW Support for Category 1 Fellowships (non-ARC/NHMRC)

Applicants for non-ARC/NHMRC Fellowships listed on the ACGR (Cat1 Fellowships) may be entitled to Central support to meet salary gaps (where the salary is set a level below the equivalent UNSW rate) and/or where matching funding/co-contribution is a Scheme requirement. Please contact the  Director GMO to confirm arrangements. Please note, retrospective funding is NOT available - this applies to submissions in 2014 and onwards.
For ARC/NHMRC named Fellowships, EB gaps will be automatically met by Central. The process is managed by the Research Finance Office. Please direct any enquiries to your Research Accountant

Category 1 Grants
Grants which are listed on the ACGR are classified as “Category 1” Grants, and are exempt from having to include indirect costs of research. This is indicated next to each scheme below where applicable. For more information on funding categories, see the Higher Education Data Collection category specifications document.

For application and submission support, notify the Grants Management Office (GMO) of your intent to apply as soon as possible. The internal deadline for submission of grant applications to the GMO is 2 weeks prior to the external deadline, This timeframe allows the GMO to ensure applications comply with UNSW policies and sponsor requirements. 

All applications from UNSW staff & students must be submitted via the Grants Management Office (GMO)
