Research Funding

Research Services provides administrative support to researchers in their bid to procure and manage research funds from external funding bodies.

Support is provided through-out the lifecycle of all externally-funded research projects with our team providing assistance with applications, submission, contract management and all post-award administration. In addition to highlighting opportunities from more traditional funding bodies, we also work with a wide range of funders including primary industry corporations and philanthropic trusts to maximise our researchers capacity to attract funds.

Our services include:

  • Providing seminars on major grant rounds;
  • Providing advice on success rates;
  • Providing advice on submission procedures;
  • Managing the submission of grant applications;
  • Providing advice on budget preparation;
  • Reviewing applications against sponsor guidelines;
  • Tips for improving the competitiveness of applications;
  • Grant writing training in partnership with the Graduate Researcher and Researcher Development Office (GRRD UCReD);
  • Revision and negotiation of funding agreements; and
  • Management of post-award issues such as variations, deferral and transfers

Researchers at the University of Canberra can access the services by logging in to the MyUC Staff portal.
