4.1 Criteria for Indigenous Health applications

All applications that relate to the improvement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health must address the Indigenous Research Excellence Criteria (see section 6.3 of the NHMRC Funding Rules 2016).  Where applications do not address the Indigenous Research Excellence Criteria to the satisfaction of the NHMRC, conditions on funding may be included to ensure the grant meets the Indigenous Research Excellence Criteria
