As an affiliated researcher, you can access HMRI grants and funding.

HMRI funding is a catalyst for success in obtaining highly competitive government and industry funding.

Applications for funding are welcome from affiliated researchers via the annual HMRI Grants Round and throughout the year as special grant nominations in the following categories:

Awards 
The HMRI Award for Research Excellence, the Director’s Award for Mid-Career Research and the HMRI Award for Early Career Research recognise the outstanding contributions of individual researchers to their field.
 Travel Grants
HMRI and HCRF fund grants to help early career researchers attend national and international research conferences, gain new knowledge in overseas facilities and foster international research collaborations.
Research Fellowships
HMRI Research Fellowships are high-value awards allowing talented researchers the opportunity to extend their career in health and medical research. They allow the Hunter’s most promising researchers to stay in the region and build capacity within the HMRI Research Programs, and give Post-doctoral researchers important experience to be competitive in NHMRC and ARC Fellowship schemes.
 PhD Scholarships Top-up and Support Grants
PhD top-up scholarships and support grants provide education opportunities for promising local PhD students and recent graduates, and help to retain high quality graduates in the region.
 Equipment Grants
HMRI helps Hunter researchers to purchase the latest equipment, ensuring projects are conducted efficiently and at the highest quality.
 Project Grants
The HMRI Project Grants and HMRI call for Expressions of Interest were separated out into two distinct processes for 2017. 

Available HMRI Project Grants (purpose and value) are now specified in the call for applications and applicants will be asked to select the grant they are applying for.  As in previous rounds, each applicant may make only one application in the round (i.e. they may only apply for one of the identified grants).

There will be a one-step assessment, undertaken by a review panel, for all applications submitted in the round
