There are no rounds available for Hermon Slade Foundation at the moment.
Conformity with the Foundation's guidelines as presented on its web site including that the project will be undertaken within Australia or countries of the south west Pacific region, under the umbrella of a university or other appropriate institution; that funding will be limited to no more than three years and A$30,000 annually, and that salaries for research scientists and stipends for students are available from other sources.
The project forms an identifiable element of work that would not be undertaken without the support of the Foundation. If the project is a sub-project of a larger investigation it must be sufficiently discrete for the outputs and outcomes to be independently evaluated. (Projects that may be seminal to subsequent larger grants from other sources are attractive to the Foundation.)
The project is in the biological or biophysical sciences or has application in those areas, as exemplified in projects described on its web site, and is not medical research.
The components of the project budget for which funds are sought from the Foundation must be justified — both travel and equipment for which funding is sought must be essential for this project.
The Foundation does not fund costs associated with attendance at conferences, either domestic or international. Publication costs levied by scientific journals are not supported by the Foundation.
Project leaders may submit only one application to each round and may not hold more than one grant concurrently. Project leaders are expected to devote an appropriate amount of time to projects supported by the Foundation.
