Australian Biological Resources Study (ABRS) National Taxonomy Research Grant Program: Research Grants

The Australian Biological Resources Study (ABRS) provides research grants to Postdoctoral Fellows and established researchers to undertake research relevant to the taxonomy and systematics of the Australian biota.

Funding & Duration

Research Grants of $10,000, $35,000, $70,000 or $90,000 per annum (excluding GST) are available, as well as a $90,000 per annum (excluding GST) Postdoctoral Fellowship grant.

All research grants are of three years duration.


All Research grants have a co-funding requirement. That is, applicants must have obtained a commitment for the applicable amount of co-funding for their application to be considered. The ABRS will place no restrictions on the source of this contribution, but applicants will need to be aware of the rules of other granting agencies, which may limit how funds contributed by them may be used. Salary may be included as co-funding. However, in an instance where two projects are of equal scientific merit but one has salary co-funding and the other cash co-funding, the project with cash co-funding will be ranked higher. In-kind contributions will be recognised but will not replace the requirement for additional co-funding input.

Please note: while an overseas institution may partner with an Australian institution on a grant project, the host institution must be an Australian institution and the student/researcher must be based at the host institution.
