Finding a sponsor or mentor
For some grant applications you may need to obtain the support of a sponsor (or mentor).
A sponsor is a current University of Sydney academic working in your field or a field closely aligned with yours, who will support your application.
You should find a University of Sydney academic who is field-appropriate for you and contact them directly. Please ask that person to discuss your proposal with the Head of School and provide you with a brief written endorsement.
