The time and resources required to prepare a competitive funding submission are often underestimated – but it is well worth the effort! This page will be regularly updated with information, tips and resources to assist you in drafting your grant application.

Before you start …

  • Read and understand the funding program guidelines.
  • Read the application form to understand all the requirements – as well as any other documentation provided by the funding body (i.e. FAQs, Feedback for Previous Applicants).
  • Ensure you have sufficient time to write the application.
