Applications are now open for The University of Sydney - India Development Fund (IDF), administered through the Office of Global Engagement.
India Development Fund
The University of Sydney - India Development Fund (IDF) provides funding to support initiatives that foster partnerships in research, teaching and learning, capacity building and other areas with institutions in India.
Applicants must demonstrate that their projects are sustainable in the long-term, preferably by including a plan for engagement that includes leveraging external funding and publication outputs.
Preference will be given to teams which include Higher Degree Research (HDR) students, postdocs, Early and Mid-Career Researchers (EMCR) and researchers on Sabbatical Leave rather than simply one-to-one research projects. Projects which are multidisciplinary in nature are encouraged.
In 2018 up to six projects will be selected for funding. Each grant is designed to principally seed new projects or boost existing projects. Approved projects may receive up to AU $15,000 from the University, to be spent over a 12-month period.
