Grant-In-Aid (Supplementation)



The purpose of the Grant-in-Aid (Supplementation) (GiAS) awards is to facilitate high quality research in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, and the related fields of biomedical science by enabling a project that has already received a commitment of funding to reach its full potential through the provision of supplementary funding.

Term of award

Up to 2 years, with the GiAS being held concurrently in the first and second years of the original project.


Applicants must be able to:
- demonstrate a shortfall of funding from a nationally competitive grants scheme administered in Australia or New Zealand (for example, ARC, NHMRC, HRC)
- demonstrate that the ability to complete the original project will be compromised, without the provision of supplementary funding
- provide copies of the original application, original budget request, actual funding received and notification of funding letter.

NOTE: This award cannot be used to supplement another GPRWMF award or grant.


The level of support is up to AUD 50,000 per annum, all inclusive. The Grant must be administered through an Australian or New Zealand institution.

How to apply

Please note that awards may not be offered every year. For years when submissions are being accepted, an announcement will be made via the GPRWMF website in November, with the application round opening in early December through to late January. Outcomes are communicated in March-April.

Application requirements

Full submission requirements are made available ahead of each application round.

In brief, submissions require:

  • An up-to-date CV, including current grants and applications pending or to be submitted within the year
  • Project overview, including title, background, specific aims and potential significance of the project to Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, and the related fields of biomedical science
  • Demonstration that the application meets the eligibility criteria
