Partnership Grants

For funding commencing in 2014

This funding scheme provides funding and support to create new opportunities for researchers and policy makers to work together to define research questions and undertake research and also to interpret and implement the findings.

Changes to the Scheme from 2012

NHMRC has changed the arrangements for this scheme to allow applicants to apply at any time during the year rather than through just one annual round. As each round closes, the next round will open on the following day.
