Notable changes to Funding Round 3
1. Enhancements to online grant application form
The online application form was launched in November last year as an alternative to the MS Word and email submission process. Positive feedback was received regarding the new method for submitting grant applications.
In addition, suggestions were received for improvement. Some of the enhancements implemented include:
- ability to apply for multiple CPD activities on a single application form;
- proposed budget calculator; and
- general user interface and usability improvements (e.g. help text labels based on Funding Guidelines).
You can submit your Funding Round 3 grant application using the new Online Application Form (closes 31 August 2018).
