SCU Research Acceleration Program

The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research) has established a Research Acceleration Program to help accelerate the  careers of successful applicants towards the award of prestigious fellowships (such as Australian Research Council or National Health and Medical Research Council fellowships) or other large scale external funding.
Applicants should present an ambitious program of research and research engagement designed to increase their own competitiveness as a researcher, while also building the University’s reputation for research excellence, and provide a plan as to how the Fellowship will transform the researcher’s career and enable them to achieve in a way they could not have otherwise.

Both streams of the Research Acceleration Program close 5:00PM 21 June 2021 and projects must  commence in July 2021.

In each case, Fellows will receive up to $25,000 to support their research, innovation and development plans and will be eligible for up to a year’s teaching or administrative relief. Early-Mid Career Fellows will also receive a personalised program of research development support and structured mentoring.

Applicants must comply with the guidelines provided below and be sent to DVCR.Internalgrants@scu.edu.au before the deadline in order to be considered for the Program:
