The Research Assistance Scheme is intended to support researchers by providing access to assistance to undertake a specific project or program of research.
The scheme recognises that researchers often require access to people with skills in areas such as data entry, management of ethics and governance applications and preparation of grant applications to undertake their research. The Research Assistance scheme funding can be used to engage a person or persons with specific research support skills required to undertake a specific project or program of research.
Applications open to the Research Assistance Scheme closed 5pm AEST Wednesday 30 June 2021. Funding outcomes are anticipated to be released mid-August 2021.
It is anticipated that the next round of Research Assistance will open in the first half of 2022.
Application must be submitted online through the SmartGrants Portal.
A preview of the online application form is available here. Note that all applicants will be required to upload a letter of support from their nominated Lead Organisation with their application.
