Support for researchers

Deakin Research provides support for our researchers in finding, applying and managing research grants, awards and prizes. Deakin Research also provides supervision and training for its research students.


Find funding and prizes

All research applications must be recorded and submitted by Deakin Research so that awarded research income is accurately reported as part of the Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC). 

Use Research Professional to set up saved searches and email alerts for funding opportunities relevant to you. Research Professional provides guidance sheets to help you establish your profile. If you need additional support, please contact your faculty/institute Liaison Librarian.

Supervision and training

Supervision is one of the most important tasks undertaken by academic staff. It involves an intensive monitoring relationship through which the student develops into an independent researcher. The effectiveness of that relationship is a key factor in the successful completion by a student of their research masters or doctoral degree.

Deakin Research provide extensive resources and training programs for supervisors of research masters or doctoral degree students.
