Funding Round at a glance
- RACS Fellow
What is the maximum amount I can apply for per Funding Round?
$2,000.00 per training day, up to (5) days (i.e. $10,000.00)
Can I apply for multiple CPD activities in the same Funding Round?
Yes – each application will be assessed individually. Note that you need to complete a separate application form for each CPD activity. See also FAQ 1.
Can I apply for a CPD activity / event overseas?
Unfortunately, no. All CPD activities must be completed within Australia.
How can I increase my chances of securing a CPD grant?
The Assessment Panel prioritises practical skills workshops and courses over Annual Scientific Meetings (ASMs).
When would I receive the CPD grant funds?
Once you have completed your approved CPD activity, email your scanned receipts related to CPD expenditure to email@example.com. Your receipts will be verified and you will be required to complete a short online evaluation survey to help improve the program. Finally, the funds will be reimbursed to your nominated bank account once you have completed the evaluation survey.
