SSA NHMRC Investigator Grant Fellowship Top-Up Awards
Are you applying for an NHMRC Investigator Grant at Emerging Leadership Level 1 or 2 this year? To help our early-career members in this highly competitive scheme, we are awarding up to five SSA Fellowship Top-Up Awards, worth $3000 each, to support their applications. A panel of senior members and recent fellowship winners will select up to five winners.
The funding will cover NHMRC Investigator Grants at Emerging Leadership Level 1 or 2 (please get in touch if you are applying for another relevant fellowship scheme with a deadline in the first quarter of 2022 that we have not considered).
Successful members will be able to state in their Fellowship application that they have been recognised by the Society and have won $3000 in competitive funding from the Statistical Society of Australia to spend during their fellowship. Receiving the $3000 SSA Fellowship Top-Up award is conditional on winning the fellowship. In their application, applicants must describe the activities that the Top-up funding will fund. Activities that would not be funded by the fellowship scheme itself will be looked upon favourably and are encouraged.
Awards are to be used for one application only and cannot be carried forward to future years. This is an annual scheme; previous winners of SSA Fellowship Funding Support schemes are permitted to re-apply.
To apply please complete this short application form by 9am AEDT on Monday, 21 February 2022. The scheme is limited to one application per member. The awards will be announced by 28 February 2022.
