Australian Competitive Grants

As a researcher at UWA, there are many grants awards, fellowships and schemes available to you.

The Research Grants Office manages internal and external grant schemes including ARC, NHMRC, and nationally competitive grant schemes. The team provides a professional pre- and post award service and is responsible for the overall research administration of grants and contract management for the entire university.

We have a team of dedicated Research Development Advisers who work in partnership with researchers to identify strategic research funding opportunities and act as catalysts to develop interdisciplinary research proposals.

All UWA researchers should subscribe to PIVOT, an online searchable database of international funding opportunities. We can help you establish a profile and search criteria.
