MQ Safety Net Scheme

MQ Safety Net Scheme

Status Open By Invitation Only

Macquarie University Safety Net Grants may be available to selected highly ranked unsuccessful (near-miss) ARC and NHMRC grants.

The funding enables the investigators to conduct a smaller scale one-year project to increase the competitiveness of their next application to the appropriate ARC or NHMRC scheme. The next application is expected to be submitted within two years of the original application.


The funding awarded each round will depend on numbers of highly ranked unsuccessful applications, and the available budget. Grants are of one-year duration only.

Key DatesA one page proposal that sets out how the requested funds will be spent and how this will improve the chance of the application being successful in the future must be submitted to the Faculty Research Office within two weeks of notification of eligibility.

Faculty recommendations for funding will be considered by the DVC(R) who will ultimately make the final funding decisions.

Outcomes for Safety Net Grants can be expected in November or December.
