Research Grants Selection Process
As advised in the Information to Applicants document, the NCSEHE has in place an Advisory Committee to assist with the research grants selection process. The Advisory Committee includes academics, senior managers and equity practitioners from a range of Australian universities.
Following the closing date, NCSEHE’s Advisory Committee evaluates all proposals against the grant round’s selection criteria. Proposals that don’t satisfy essential selection criterion are set aside. Successful applicants are notified in writing, and contract negotiations begin in March/April each year. Unsuccessful applicants are notified in writing shortly thereafter.
