The Capstone Editing Grant for Mid-Career Researchers provides up to A$10,000 of seed funding for one researcher per year to undertake an innovative research project. The expectation is that the research project will gather preliminary data and lead to the development of a research council funding application.
The grant can be used to cover any costs related to the research project, such as software or small lab equipment; domestic or overseas travel to learn new techniques or collaborate with colleagues; academic editing of the grant proposal; and data analysis.
Capstone Editing values Australian research careers. As such, we have targeted this grant to support mid-career researchers, particularly through the preliminary stages of their research project. We hope that the Capstone Editing Mid-Career Researchers Grant will provide the successful applicant with the funds to begin preliminary work, leading to them winning a grant that will help them progress their career.
Applications are open from 1 July to 30 December every year.
The grant will be awarded on 1 March the following year.
The funds must be used within 12 months of their award.
