Information for Applicants
SWRRFI Funding projects
In February each year the Foundation calls for expressions of interest. A limited number of projects are short-listed on the basis of their high scientific merit and likely contribution to the Foundation's objectives.
Applicants who are short-listed are invited to submit a detailed project plan describing the research to be undertaken, including costs.
Plans may be submitted by SWRRFI to a specialist external referee (not necessarily within Australia) for further scientific evaluation.
The Foundation attempts to fund a number of applications each year. Successful applicants are required to report on the progress of the project by 1 September each year and to produce a final report by 30 June in the year following cessation of the project.
The Foundation requests copies of publications and thesis which result from projects, and acknowledgement in all lectures, presentations, displays and published material.
What we learn will create a clearer path to safeguarding the fragile marine environment for generations to come.
