MQ Research Seeding Grants

MQ Research Seeding Grants


MQ Research Seeding Grants assist Macquarie University staff to increase their competitiveness in attracting external research funding. The grants enable researchers to develop a research project into a viable proposal for submission to an external funding body.

The submission of an application for substantial external funding by 31 December 2022 is a Condition of Award. Macquarie University must be the Administering Institution on this external application. The strategy and schedule for attracting external research funding is one of the selection criterion.


Up to $50,000 over a two year period (max $25,000 each year).
