MQ Co-Funding

MQ Co-Funding

Status Open
Aim External funding schemes often require a commitment of funds, known as 'co-funding', from the University in addition to the funds requested through the scheme. Chief Investigators should first approach their Department and/or Faculty when seeking co-funding. The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research) (DVCR) will contribute co-funding where the potential benefit to the University warrants the investment.

The amount of co-funding depends on the amount of external funds that will come to Macquarie. The ratio of the level of co-funding provided by the DVCR to the request from the external funding body will generally be no more than 1:4 (i.e. 20% of the total funding will be contributed by the DVCR). Where the co-funding has major strategic value the ratio may be increased to 1:3 (i.e. 25% of the total funding will be contributed by the DVCR).

Faculty Processes

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.
