The NHMRC provides funding annually to NHMRC approved Administering Institutions to facilitate the procurement of equipment designed to support high quality health and medical research, as supported by the NHMRC or other competitive grant support.

Allocation of Funding

No application is required for Equipment Grant funding. Grants are allocated annually to Administering Institutions that hold competitively awarded NHMRC health and medical research grants in a particular funding year. The total amount offered to Institutions is calculated by allocating funds pro rata based on the NHMRC health and medical research grants held by each Institution in the calendar year. Allocations of less than $5,000 are returned to the total pool and re-distributed accordingly.
