Each year small research seed grants of up to $10K are available that are designed to encourage research undertaken on a systematic basis. The aim of research funded under this scheme is to contribute to human knowledge through scholarly debate in refereed publications/conferences, exhibitions, performances and to provide 'seed funding' to develop the track record needed to win external grants.
The grants are designed to encourage applicants to:
- work collaboratively, whereby novice researchers (including HDR students) are members of teams along with more experienced researchers;
- provide the groundwork for other projects and/or generate funds from other sources; and
- publish an article in a refereed journal or refereed proceedings (as an extension of exhibitions, performances and other activities that can be expected to follow from the research).
Applications for research grants from CSaLT need to be aligned with the strategic foci of the research centre and CIs (leaders) of teams need to be a School of Education staff member.
