Critical Dates

Deadline/Applications Close

End of November 2021

Results released



The University of Melbourne (UoM) and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJ) signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2008 to foster exchange and research collaboration between the universities. Both Universities affirmed this partnership in November 2012 with an agreement to establish the Joint Research Workshop Grants Program. The program supports UoM and HUJ collaborators to convene a research workshop in Melbourne or Jerusalem.

The program aims to facilitate collaborations that:

  • promote knowledge exchange and foster idea development.
  • encourage student exchange and academic cooperation.
  • enable joint research proposals to external funding agencies.


This bilateral program offers funding of up to $AUD 20,000 per application.  There will be two workshops funded in this year's round, one in Melbourne and one at HUJ.


  • The UoM Chief Investigator (PI) must hold an appointment at the University of Melbourne at
    Academic Level A6 or higher and 0.5 FTE or higher at the time of application and for the
    duration of the award. Honorary employees whose primary academic affiliation is the
    University of Melbourne are eligible to lead the application if their primary employer has
    entered into an agreement with the University for the support of the Australian component
    of the collaborative activity; or may participate at their own expense if they are otherwise
    unaffiliated (for example, they hold an emeritus position). Previous recipients may not
    currently reapply to the scheme but may participate as a co-investigator. The relevant Heads
    of Department/Units must endorse applications.
