MQ Research Centres
The Macquarie University Research Centres (MQRC) Scheme is the means by which major, coordinated, cohesive and high-performing research groupings are branded, promoted and supported as Macquarie University Research Centres. Some of the reasons that a MQRC would be established include:
The expected outcomes of establishing MQRCs include:
Up to $50,000 per year for three years, subject to satisfactory annual progress reports.
Funds are intended to provide support for the Centre management and administration (e.g. to provide teaching relief and/or administrative assistance for the Centre Director) or to support Centre activities (e.g. workshops and inviting key visiting scholars to the Centre).
In the third year of funding an MQRC may apply for extension of its MQRC status. This involves submission of a new MQRC application.
The Faculties have their own approval and review processes for grants under this scheme. They may also have deadlines for submission of draft applications that are earlier than the Research Office deadlines. Please ensure that you contact your Faculty, as early as possible, for information on process and deadlines. Faculty contacts:
