James S. McDonnell Foundation (JSMF): Scholars Award in Complex Systems 2015

The JSMF Scholar Awards program is an interdisciplinary scheme, aiming to further the science of complex systems via the continued development of the theory and tools used in the study of complex research questions, and not for any particular fields of research.

The JSMF is particularly interested in projects attempting to apply complex systems approaches to coherently articulated questions.

Funding & Duration

The Scholars Award funds research to a value of US $450,000 (approximately AUD $560,000) across 6 years.


The JSMF funds researchers internationally. Eligible Scholar Award principal investigators must have completed all doctoral, postdoctoral, or fellowship training and hold an independent research position. James S. McDonnell Scholar Awards are not intended to serve primarily as career development awards – the intent is to allow creative researchers to pursue important research.

Submission Requirements & Internal Due Date

Applications must be submitted for internal review by 4 March 2015.

Submitted applications must be accompanied by a signed and completed copy of the University’s Grant Application Cover Sheet.

Applications may be emailed to the Research Branch unless otherwise specified.
