|Information on the contents of each column:|
|Scheme||This column identifies the name of the funding body and the scheme, as well as an indication if the scheme requires an internal assessment step, or has a continuous submission process.|
|Further Details||Clicking on a 'Further Details' link will take you to a secure document outlining the scheme, eligibility overview and appropriate website or resource for applying to this scheme. Please note: this link is secure to QUT staff and may prompt you to sign into your QUT Office365 account.|
|Notification due||If you intend to apply for this opportunity, please advise the Office of Research Services by completing the 'Notify ORS' step in the next column, by this deadline.|
|Notify ORS||Clicking a 'Notify' link will generate a pre-filled email for you to send to the Office of Research Services, informing of your intent to apply. This notification allows the Office of Research Services to inform potential applicants of any scheme specific information that comes to hand. It also assists us in coordinating the rounds and to ensure staff capacity. Additional information may be requested in addition to this notification upon receipt. This field will automatically change to 'closed' after the 'External Close' date, however the scheme and related information will remain on this spreadsheet.|
|Additional Dates||This column flags whether there are any additional dates applicants must aware of which are the result of specific scheme requirements.
If 'Yes' is indicated, please refer to the 'Further details' link for an overview of requirements.
|Draft Review||If you would like the Office of Research Services to perform a full review of your draft application, you are required to meet this date. Draft applications received after this date may only be reviewed in terms of eligibility. Please note that, from time to time, this date may be mandatory. Applications will be accepted to close of business, unless otherwise specified in the linked document in 'Further details'.|
|External Close||This is the deadline (as specified by the funding body) that the Office of Research Services must submit your application by. Most funding bodies will also set a time of day that applications must be received by, this will be reflected in the information displayed within the linked document in 'Further Details'.|
