*EOI deadlines are subject to change upon release of ARC and NHMRC external deadlines. Updates will be communicated via the school and FedNews.

The majority of subsequent internal deadlines are available below on our ARC and NHMRC internal dates for current rounds page and others will be set and released upon receipt of EOIs. Adherence to the above deadlines ensures that the DVCRI approved process is carried out and managed effectively. Late EOIs will not be accepted unless exceptional circumstances apply, and have been pre-approved by both the School and the DVCRI. However, Research Services staff can be contacted at any time during the process to discuss any aspect of an application.

Any questions or concerns regarding the process can be directed to Tina D’Urbano, Team Leader Research Funding (
