This scheme aims to:
- Support successful ARC Future Fellows in establishing their research program at the University of Melbourne
- Enhance the candidate’s competitiveness when applying for the ARC Future Fellowship scheme
Faculties may set their own objectives and priorities in determining which candidates will be nominated for Establishment Grant support. Fellows must apply to their host faculty for Establishment Grant support through whatever process the faculty deems appropriate.
RIC will offer grants of up to $100,000 per project. To be eligible for central RIC support, the host department/school/faculty must provide matching funding on a 2:1 basis. RIC may reduce its level of support in the event that requests exceed the budget for this program.
RIC does not impose any restrictions on how the RIC funding can be used, as long as it directly supports the Future Fellow and their project. Faculties may enforce restrictions on the use of funding as appropriate.
How to apply
