NHMRC Fellowships and Awards

Early Career Fellowships
NHMRC Early Career Fellowships provide opportunities for Australian researchers to undertake research that is of major importance in its field and of benefit to Australian health. A major objective of the scheme is to foster career development at the postdoctoral level by encouraging experiences in a different research environment.

Project Grants
The Project Grants scheme is the NHMRC’s main avenue of support for individuals and small teams of researchers undertaking clinical, biomedical, public health and health services research in Australian universities, medical schools, hospitals and other research institutions.

Program Grants
NHMRC Program Grants provide support for teams of high calibre researchers to pursue broad-based, multi-disciplinary and collaborative research activities. Teams contribute to new knowledge at a leading international level in important areas of health and medical research.

Development Grants
NHMRC Development Grants provide funding support to individual researchers or research teams to undertake research at the early proof-of-principle or pre-seed stage. The Scheme supports the commercial development of a product, process, procedure or service that if applied, would result in improved health care, disease prevention or provide health cost savings.

International Collaborative Grants
NHMRC’s Collaborative Research Grants scheme aims assist Australian researchers to participate in multinational research collaborative projects with international researchers.
