  • Maternity funding (up to $25,000) – to fund another researcher or research assistant to continue your research program while you are on maternity leave;
  • Carer funding (up to $1,000) – to cover out-of-pocket childcare or respite costs incurred while you present at a conference or sit on a professional research committee.
