UNSW Goldstar research grants

UNSW Goldstar research grants are awarded by the Vice Chancellor annually in recognition of UNSW researchers who achieved near misses in the ARC and NHMRC funding rounds.

The Goldstar funds allow some initial research on the proposed research program to proceed, and to allow the investigators to further refine and improve their application for re-submission.
