Funding opportunities

This section contains information relating to scholarships, grants, tenders, and other funding issues relevant to Indigenous health. Should you be interested in communicating in a more immediate way with others interested in Indigenous health you may wish to become a member of our e-message stick.

When you click on one of the headings of the table, the list will be sorted according to that heading. For more information about the funding opportunity, click on the title.

If you have information you would like to have included on this page please contact us.

Funding types:

Recurrent, non-recurrent funding or ongoing funding

Content in this section is organised under three main categories. Funding opportunities will be categorised under one of three types depending on application timelines and availability.

  • Non-recurrent funding: refers to funding opportunities that become available throughout the year but will no longer be available once the specified date has passed. These opportunities are usually 'once off' opportunities and need to be applied for by the specified closing date.
  • Recurrent funding: refers to funding opportunities that are available throughout the year and typically recur in following years also. These opportunities will generally have a specified closing date that is similar each year but need to be applied for by the specified closing date in the appropriate year.
  • Ongoing funding: refers to funding opportunities that presently exist and continue to be available across years with no specified closing dates for applications. These opportunities can be applied for at any time throughout the year.
