Funding opportunities and grants provided by CBA
Each year the CBA funds a number of pilot projects via our Ignition Grant program. We typically have two rounds per year (around March and September).
Looking forward, our key goals include:
As part of our Ignition grant scheme, the CBA may fund Honours Awards for either the January or mid-year intake of honours students. We will also consider funding for Masters students' projects.
A new round of Ignition Grants will open in September 2020.
Our main goal with this funding is to facilitate ANU and UC students spending time in CSIRO labs, providing valuable exposure to CSIRO scientists and research.
Up to $10,000 may be awarded (including up to a $5000 stipend).
We want to hear from you!
The CBA welcomes input from our Early Career Researchers (Postdocs and PhD students) regarding the types of training activities they need to address their specific research requirements and interests.
