This site provides access to the application forms for School research funding for SHIR staff.

All staff research funding schemes other than Study Leave, Flinders Research Grants and Establishment Grants, have been devolved to the School. The Faculty provides administrative and management support for the devolved schemes. 

The School of History and International Relations provides two basic schemes:

  • conference attendance and travel funding 
    • in Australia and
    • Overseas
  • project funding which includes
    • Visiting Research Fellowships
    • conference and workshop facilitation
    • publication support and
    • small research projects

The SHIR research funding application process

Download and fillout either Staff Conference or Staff Project application form.

CVs or lists of publications are no longer required with each application as these will be checked instead on the University-wide RMIS . You will be asked to confirm in your application that all of your publications have been entered into the RMIS.

Accountability for funds received has increased. Applicants need to commit to the production of high-quality outputs as a part of the application process. Every application for funding of any sort must now include a completed Outcomes Form, identifying the planned research output (usually a publication), and the timetable by which it will be completed.
