Our research grants calendar shows major funding opportunities coordinated by the Office for Research.

We recommend you use Research Professional to search for funding opportunities specific to your field and funding needs. If you are intending to apply to any competitive research grant scheme please email the Griffith Contact (if a scheme listed here) or preaward@griffith.edu.au as soon as possible so we can provide you initial guidance on the submission process.

Please note: Applications to most ARC and NHMRC schemes are subject to a Grant Application Development Process well in advance of the internal submission dates. The ARC Linkage Scheme has its own separate Notification of Intent process and timelines.
