Our internal fellowships and grants seed new initiatives and partnerships, and allow researchers to push the bounds of their discipline.
These fellowships are intended to empower up to 40 of the world's best and brightest emerging academics to undertake innovative research that will build our understanding of, and resilience to climate change, improve health outcomes, and create a more sustainable world.
The University of Sydney funds three categories of Research excellence and inclusion prizes for employees. They include:

Available to University of Sydney employees, the following opportunities are available for industry engagement:
The Ignition Grants are a new initiative to support researchers from the University of Sydney and its strategic partner universities to facilitate collaborative projects that develop multidisciplinary cutting-edge research to create academic and societal impact. Projects which seek to address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are highly encouraged.
These grants are designed to provide researchers, in particular early- and mid-career researchers, with the opportunity to work with our strategic partners in developing joint research projects. Preference is given to teams which include PhD or masters by research students, postdocs, early- and mid-career researchers and researchers on sabbatical leave, rather than one-to-one research projects.
It is expected that all funded projects will evolve into larger scale projects, sustained by leveraging external funding.
The number of projects selected and funding available varies between partnerships. Funds are available for 12 months, and the amounts awarded range between AUD 20,000 to AUD 40,000 per project.
