UNE Indigenous Researcher Seed Grant Program

There has already been a round of Indigenous Researcher seed grants for 2017. Future round dates to be advised.


The UNE Indigenous Researcher Seed Grant Program provides research funding for Indigenous Researchers working at the University. The aim of the program is to provide UNE support for Indigenous Researchers. Applicants may apply for up to a maximum of $4,000.00 to fund any research activity that will either develop their research project, or enhance their research career. The UNE Indigenous Researcher Seed Grant Program provides seed funding outside of, and in addition to, the normal School funding for Indigenous researchers.

Only Indigenous Researchers who are academic staff or HDR candidates at UNE are able to apply.

There is no form to complete, rather applicants should apply by email to dogs@une.edu.au and include the information below.

Applications must include the following information:
Applying either 1) to enhance their research project, or 2) to enhance their research career
Project proposal
Statement of benefit on receiving this support

Projects are expected to be completed by April 30 2018 and a written report on the outcomes of the project needs to be provided to Research Services by that date.
