Capstone Editing: Grant for Mid-Career Researchers 2017

The Capstone Editing Grant for Mid-Career Researchers provides seed funding for a researcher 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.

Funding & Duration

Grants are awarded at up to $10,000 of seed funding for one researcher per year.

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.
