Important notes for RAOs and Applicants

1.  Applicants and RAOs should note the following changes to 2015 rounds as a result of the RGMS upgrade:

  • Funding rules and offline application forms for Project Grants will be released in December 2014 as usual. However, applications will only be accepted in RGMS from 14 January 2015.
  • Applications for Centres of Research Excellence, Research Fellowships and Practitioner Fellowships will open in January 2015, instead of November/December 2014. Applicants for these schemes will have an equivalent period of time to submit applications, compared with 2013-14.
  • Where possible, closing dates have been staggered to minimise loads on researchers and RAOs, and to avoid clashes with the ARC Discovery Projects scheme.

2.  CIAs must have commenced their applications and entered the minimum data in RGMS by 5pm AEST/AEDT on the specified due date.  Applications that fail to meet these requirements will not be accepted. Refer to the relevant scheme-specific funding rules for further details.
