|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).
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:
Faculty of Arts
Faculty of Business and Economics
Faculty of Human Sciences
Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences
Faculty of Science and Engineering
Applications for co-funding, along with a draft of the external application, should be submitted by close of business on the day one-week prior to the external funding body's deadline.
Applications must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
