Strategic Grants for Outstanding Women – Now closed for Applications

Thank you for your interest in this scheme, however the School will not be accepting any further applications for this round.

The Melbourne Medical School is delighted to officially launch a brand new initiative: the Strategic Grants for Outstanding Women. This scheme aims to assist talented female academics to negotiate some of the challenges they face in sustaining and building their careers with a view to facilitating their progression to senior academic positions.

Women, from Academic Levels B to D, who have an existing salaried or honorary affiliation with the Melbourne Medical School are eligible to apply. At least six grants will be available in this inaugural round, each providing funding of between $25,000 to $45,000 per year, for up to two years, to support research, teaching and/or leadership activities.

Applicants are encouraged to be open-minded when considering how they could use these funds to bolster their academic capability, productivity and profile. However, please note that this is not a project or fellowship scheme and so these grants do not provide support for direct research costs or the applicant’s salary.

Further details on this exciting new Melbourne Medical School initiative are available in the scheme guidelines and application form, which are available on the MMS intranet scheme page (University of Melbourne login details required).
