Australia & Pacific Science Foundation (APSF) provides funding on a competitive basis to encourage high quality research by scientists in national or state institutions, and universities.
APSF’s Research Committee particularly favours research activities that seem likely to lead to improved systems of managing land, water, plants and animals in ways which will enhance the productivity and quality of food, fisheries, plants and forests, while simultaneously conserving the natural environment, preserving biodiversity, avoiding pollution of soils and water, and enhancing human welfare.
Funding & Duration
The Foundation provides support of up to $15,000 per annum, for a maximum of three years.
Grants are awarded to institutions within Australia or other countries of the South West Pacific region for activities within those countries.
The project must be in the biological or biophysical sciences or have application in those areas, and must not be medical research.
