Changes to Eligibility for DVCR Co-Funding
Eligibility for the DVCR Co-Funding Scheme is now contingent upon on-time submission of grant applications by the Macquarie University submission date. Many applications for external funding require cash and in-kind contributions from the host institution in order to be considered for funding. In most cases, researchers request cash contributions, such as project support funds, funding for research associates, scholarships and major equipment, from the DVCR via the DVCR Co-Funding Scheme to support their external funding applications. To be eligible to request this DVCR Co-Funding, grant applications must be submitted internally, via Pure, by the Macquarie University submission date.
ARC message on eligibility extension (1 May 2020): Due to the impacts of COVID-19 to mid-career researchers, the ARC has introduced a one year automatic eligibility extension for all researchers currently in their final year of eligibility. Researchers in their final year of eligibility for Future Fellowships may choose to apply in 2020 (for FT 2021) or utilise the automatic one-year eligibility extension to apply in 2021 (for FT 2022). Final year applicants cannot apply in both rounds.
