The Near Miss Grant Scheme provides funding for highly ranked, unsuccessful ARC and NHMRC project applicants

Near Miss Grants

In 2005 the Research Committee introduced the Near Miss Grant Scheme for highly ranked, unsuccessful ARC Discovery Projects, ARC Indigenous Researcher Development and NHMRC Project applicants.

The Near Miss Grant Scheme funding is to act as a general incentive for researchers as well as assisting the research team to further develop their research with the aim of submitting another external grant application.

Key Dates

No application form is required for the Near Miss Grant scheme. Recipients are advised after the ARC and NHMRC outcomes are announced.
