Deakin Research Grants Services

DR Grants Application Services include:

  • Compliance Checking applications against Scheme Guidelines
    • Checking to ensure your application meets any formatting requirements, documentation requirements e.g. application attachments), all application sections are completed and comply with stated limits, and any other eligibility requirements
  • Providing Institutional and Research Office details
  • Obtaining Deakin Research Official signatures for documentation, e.g.:
    • Letters of Support
    • Endorsement Forms
    • Application Declarations
  • Application Submission to Funding Bodies
    • Portal applications linked to University accounts (e.g. ARC RMS, NHMRC Sapphire, Heart Foundation)
    • Email submission where Guidelines require applications to be submitted by the Institutional Research Office

Please note, Deakin Research Grants does not assist with application preparation, application granstmanship development, or completion of University forms (e.g. Not-Deakin Led or Co-Investment forms). If you require assistance with the preparation or completion of your application or forms, please speak with your Faculty Research Office (scroll to 'Faculty Research' section), who will be able to provide support.

Notification Process

Unless specified, when you find an opportunity, please lodge a Notice of Intent to Submit (NOIS) (DOC, 43KB) as soon as possible (preferably 20 working days prior to the external deadline). 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.

These deadlines are strict, as we use application NOIS numbers to distribute workloads across our team. We require applications to be submitted 10 working days prior to the external deadline to allow sufficient time for a compliance check to be completed (please allow up to 5 business days for a compliance check to be completed), and to allow you to make any changes that may be required, prior to submission to the Funding Body. Late submission for compliance check is not acceptable, as workloads have already been distributed among our staff, and a late submission will impact their ability to complete a full compliance check of your application.

US Federal Government/National Institutes of Health (NIH) schemes

If you are intending to apply to a US Federal Government scheme you must advise the Grants team to ensure institutional compliance for the application. 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, US Federal Government/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

PVCR approval is now required for all Not Deakin-Led applications^. Guidelines and request forms can be found on the Research Sharepoint Page.

  • 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.

Resources

Resources to assist you in completing your application and the Grant Application Coversheet can be found on our Research Support SharePoint page. This includes:

Research Classification Codes come from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Deakin University is required to report 6 digit codes for all research.
