MQ Research Projects (New Staff / Restart)
Macquarie University Research Projects aim to ensure that Macquarie researchers are competitively positioned and well supported to attract external research funding. The following grants are supported through Macquarie University Research Projects:
New Staff (MQNS)
The primary purpose of MQNS grants is to assist academic staff recently appointed at Level A or B to establish their research profile at Macquarie and increase their competitiveness in applying for external funding. Applications are evaluated on academic merit and individual need. The scheme is only open to academic staff appointed to "teaching and research" positions.
Restart Grants for Academic Staff Returning from Parental Leave
Restart Grants provide funding to Macquarie academics (appointed at any level) after parental leave of at least six months. Applications must be made within twelve months of the staff member's return to normal duties
The maximum funding available for MQNS and Restart Grants is $20,000 over a 12 month period.
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:
