Deakin Research subscribes to Research Professional – a database that allows researchers to set up saved searches and email alerts for funding opportunities of direct relevance to them.  
Research Professional provides guidance sheets to help you establish your profile.  If you need additional support, please contact your faculty/institute Liaison Librarian.

The list below is intended as a guide to some of the more popular funding opportunities. There are many other awards.  Use Research Professional to find those relevant to your level of expertise and discipline.

Unless specified, when you find an opportunity, please lodge a Notice of Intent to Submit (NOIS) (DOC, 43KB) as soon as possible. A complete application and signed Grant Application Coversheet (DOC, 31KB) is required at least 10 working days prior to the external submission date for compliance check. All documents are to be sent via email to research-grants@deakin.edu.au.

US Government/National Institutes of Health (NIH)

US Government/NIH funding opportunities require a minimum of 3 months Notice of Intent to Submit, and application is required 20 working days prior to external submission date for compliance check.

In addition, NIH applicants need to be aware of, and comply with, the Financial Conflicts of Interest requirements of the US Federal Public Health Service and the National Institutes of Health.

Not Deakin-Led Process

  • For schemes with a two step application process (i.e. EOI and full application), please seek approval once you have been invited to submit a full application. Please ensure you discuss with the Lead Organisation/CI at the EOI stage the funding that will come to Deakin, to ensure you will meet the expectations listed in the Not Deakin-Led Guidelines.
