The objectives of this scheme are to:
- Support the pursuit of US research funding by providing both an accelerator program aimed at educating researchers on the US grant funding landscape and seed funding to support an application with values of approximately $100,000 AUD.
- For participants seeking support for applications that have values of less than $100,000 AUD, applicants need to demonstrate that the US GAP funding is required for the application to succeed, and that the funding will benefit their research output, impact and future funding prospects.
Chancellery will match the Academic Division’s contribution on a 1:1 basis up to $2,500 each. There is no limit on how much an Academic Division may contribute above that figure though it is expected that most participants will apply for a maximum of $5000. Academic Divisions may apply their own limits to the quantity and value of grants. The original number of participants will dictate the contribution by Chancellery.
