MRFF Application Eligibility Criteria and Compliance Checking

Applications must address all of the eligibility and assessment criteria as set out in the guidelines.

Applicants are requested to pay careful attention to Chief Investigator (CI) eligibility including limits that are in place on the number of times a person can be named as a CI on applications submitted to a grant opportunity. Please refer to the eligibility section of the relevant grant opportunity guidelines. To assist with this eligibility checking process, RAOs can access a CI Application Count Dashboard on Sapphire’s tutorial page (see Institution/Our Applications/CI - Application Count Dashboard).

Eligibility checking of applications submitted to the 2021 Indigenous Health Research grant opportunity will use information in the application and the Chief Investigator’s Sapphire Profile (refer section 3.1 of the grant guidelines). Applicants are advised to check the relevant information in their Sapphire Profile prior to submission.

MRFF Grant Assessment Committee Self Nomination

Researchers, consumers, clinicians and health practitioners, as well as those in industry, policy or who manage health services are invited to express their interest in assisting with the assessment of MRFF applications as a member of a grant assessment committee.
