Applications should be peer-reviewed. An application will only be accepted by Research Services if it has been reviewed by a senior colleague recommended by the College Associate Dean (Research), unless the ADR  has waived this requirement. Peer review (or waiver) sign-off is required in the NHMRC Funding Cover Sheet to be submitted along with your application.

To assist with completing your application

Up-to-date information on schemes and timings is broadcast through NHMRC Tracker, their fortnightly e-news service.  To subscribe to the NHMRC Tracker, send an email to nhmrc.media@nhmrc.gov.au.
