Other international funding sources
The above is by no means an exhaustive list of international funding bodies. If you are searching for international opportunities directly related to your research, discipline area, or a particular country, you can do so using Research Professional.
Research Professional provides an extensive database of international funding opportunities that Australian researchers are eligible to apply for. All University staff are able to search for grants, awards, fellowships, and other opportunities, as well as setup personalised searches and alerts to stay informed of new opportunities as they arise.
More information on how to log in as well as User Guides for setting up searches, can be found on the UON website.
