Eligibility to apply for, and hold, an Investigator, Ideas or Synergy Grant is linked to the numbers of grants applied for or held from NHMRC’s grant program, as well as other grants held that include salary. 

Applicants must refer to all documentation made available under the relevant grant opportunity on GrantConnect when considering their eligibility to apply. GrantConnect is the authoritative source for information on each grant opportunity. 

The Chief Investigator A (CIA) and Administering Institution are responsible for ensuring applications meet all eligibility requirements when applying, and throughout the life of the grant (if successful).  

Grant offers may be withdrawn and action may be taken over the life of a grant if at any time eligibility criteria are not met. 

Note: NHMRC staff will not make eligibility rulings before an application is submitted.
