An important function of the University’s Research Office (RO) and the School’s Research Support Officer, is to connect your research goals to funding opportunities. Please click the more button below for further information including

  • School Research Support
  • RO bulletins and databases
  • funding opportunities from external bodies

By subscribing to the RO email bulletins and relevant research funding databases you will receive regular updates to maximise your research funding opportunities. To subscribe to the weekly RO email bulletin (published each Friday), please complete this online form

You may also search for funding opportunities via the InfoEd suite which contains a series of databases to help you locate research opportunities including;

  • research funding (SPIN),
  • researcher expertise (GENIUS) and
  • a funding alert program (SMARTS) .

It is accessed by over six hundred academic, medical and scientific institutions worldwide. You can create your own profile by selecting “Get Profile” and follow the prompts as well as search other researcher profiles and opportunities – InfoEd login –

Other sources of funding opportunities can be found at:

The RO also has a webpage with links to major Australian granting agencies, University grant schemes, international granting agencies, fellowships and industry links –

The School’s Research Support Officer, Nikki Whipps, also sends email alerts to relevant staff as they become available – your staff profile on your department’s website is an important source of information for this task so please ensure that your web profile is kept up to date.

Updates can be sent to: Julie-Ann Robson | Publications Officer Tel 9351 2759 | julie-ann dot robson at usyd dot edu dot au

Once you have identified a funding opportunity Nikki is available to research the criteria/regulations in finer detail and to assist in the preparation of any subsequent applications, especially budgets.
