SWSR Small Grant Scheme

Nurture new collaborations and aid research capacity building with a $20,000 grant!

Collaboration is fundamental to research quality and success. It occurs across disciplines, institutions and national and international boundaries.

South West Sydney Research is offering at least two $20,000 grants to recognise and nurture collaborative research amongst our members. Grant funds must be spent for the primary purpose of achieving the objectives of the Small Grant Scheme (to nurture new collaborations and aid research capacity building).

In this round, the priority areas are:

  • Improve community engagement in research and address local community needs
  • Increase translation/implementation of research outcomes into policy/practice

Applications for the 2018 Small Grant Scheme have now closed.

Would you like some extra information about how grants were evaluated? For those who are registered with South West Sydney Research, detailed evaluation information is available in the members section of the website here.
