Grants - Types

A. Research Grants


AUSiMED is not currently taking applications for research grants.


1.Grants for one to three years (up to $150,000 per annum for a maximum of three years) - A limited number of grants will be available for approved medical research collaborations between Australia and Israel

2.Joint PhD from two universities (up to $30,000 per annum for three years for studies leading to a PhD). Where a university in Australia has a formal written alliance with a university in Israel, it is possible for both universities to offer a joint PhD. AUSiMED is keen to support this type of PhD.

3.Post Doctoral Scholarships (up to $70,000 per annum)
Post doctoral scholarships (of varying lengths) will be available where research work will be carried out both in Australia and Israel. Therefore , this grant includes travel costs between countries.

4.Clinical or Research Fellowships for either Australian or Israeli candidates (up to a maximum of $100,000 per fellowship per annum)
Fellowships (of usually one year) will be available to Australian and Israeli researchers participating in collaborative initiatives. Some Fellowships will be reserved for promising scientists in the early stages of a career in medical research.

5.Top Up Grants (up to $50,000)
When submitting new grant applications to other funding bodies, AUSiMED could be mentioned as potentially offering additional “top up” funding for offshore work in Israel. Where the “top up” is required for an existing Grant, AUSiMED will investigate whether the grant conditions for the approved project, will permit “topping up” to allow funds to be sent offshore.

B.Kick Start Grants

1.Catalyst Grant from $5,000 to $20,000
This funding is to purchase project critical external analytical or other services or expensive reagents required for a project with an Israeli collaborator, eg production of monoclonal antibodies, bioimaging, DNA sequencing, protein or peptide production or genetically modified animal models.

2.Conference Grants (up to $2500 per conference)
AUSiMED will contribute to the cost of attending a conference where a potential Israeli research collaborator is also attending, to assist with the commencement of a possible collaboration.

3.Short Stay Travel Scholarships (up to $3000 per visit)
Reimbursement of up to $1500 for the cost of accommodation and food for a 3 or 4 day side trip to Israel, to meet potential collaborators. All flights are to be arranged at the Grantee’s cost (if the Grantee was already going to be in Europe, he or she would be able to arrange a side trip to Israel at little or no cost).
