Deadline looms for research fund applications

Researchers are reminded that they have until 1.00pm Monday 19 March to apply for funding in the latest round of New Independent Researcher Infrastructure Support (NIRIS) Awards.

These competitive awards recognise outstanding new medical and health researchers in Western Australia by providing grants of up to $15,000.

The money supports researchers to develop independent research careers. The grants help cover the costs of infrastructure associated with the researchers’ projects. Past NIRIS recipients have used their NIRIS funding to pay for things such as computers or laboratory equipment.
