National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Investigator Grants 2021

The objective of the NHMRC’s Investigator Grant scheme is to support the research program of outstanding investigators at all career stages. It consolidates salary and research support into a single grant scheme by offering a salary component (if required) and a research support package.

The intended outcomes of the Investigator Grant scheme are:

  • flexibility for investigators to pursue important new research directions as they arise and to form collaborations as needed
  • innovative and creative research
  • opportunities for researchers at all career stages to establish their own research programs
  • reduced application and peer review burden on researchers.
