The internal deadline for submission of grant applications is required to the RGC prior to the external deadline and by the internal deadline. This timeframe allows for the Pre-award team to review for eligibility, compliance and ensure your proposal complies with UNSW policies and sponsor requirements and allows time for amendments when required. For application and submission support, notify the Research Grants and Contracts (RGC) of your intent to apply as soon as possible. The Internal deadline for all NHMRC Schemes is 3 weeks prior to the NHMRC deadline with the exception of NHMRC Partnerships the Internal deadline is 4 weeks prior to the NHMRC Deadline.
