Apply for a grant

Each year the Trust calls for applications for their honours and postgraduate research grants. In 2022 a new seed-funding grant has been introduced. This grant program is open to application from JCU academics and research teams working on marine stingers.

The Trust are particularly interested in research projects with the following output goals: 

  • Prediction: predicting the occurrence of jellyfish in time and space;
  • Detection: detecting and accurately identifying jellyfish and understanding their ecology;
  • Barriers: cost-effective and feasible barriers between people and jellyfish;
  • Diagnosis: rapid diagnosis of a sting, how recent and by what jellyfish;
  • Treatment: effective treatments from first aid to in-the-hospital;
  • Public Health: community approaches to managing risks of human and jellyfish interactions.

The 2022 grant round is now closed.  Check back in April 2023 for details on the 2023 grant round.
