Not Deakin-Led Process

Approval is now required for all Not Deakin-Led applications^. We will use information from the Grant Application Coversheet to request approval from the Office of the DVCR. Ensure you complete details on External Lead Organisation and CI, total budget, funding coming to Deakin, and any in-kind/cash the University will be providing to assist with approval assessment.

  • Submit a NOIS Form by the NOIS deadline for the scheme, or as soon as possible
  • Complete the Grant Application Coversheet and submit by the internal deadline (10 working days prior to scheme closing)
    • It is expected for higher FTE contributions that some funds will come to Deakin University (5-10% of total budget request)

    ^ If a scheme has an EOI and Application two step process, we will seek approval once EOI has been approved
