MQ New Staff Grants

MQ New Staff Grants


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.


The maximum funding available for MQNS Grants is $20,000 over a 12 - 24 month period.
