The GrantEd Group helps researchers plan and develop successful applications for Australian Research Council (ARC), National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) schemes, as well as many other research funding schemes. Our strategic, practical support follows a proven methodology that helps researchers write applications that:
effectively communicate a compelling ‘Why this? Why us? Why now?’ narrative
comprehensively address the scheme instructions/guidelines and selection criteria
are more likely to win
We’ve developed a suite of options to suit individual needs and budgets, including:
bundle review options
individual parts review
support items, such as written guides and video training, available through the GrantEd Learning Community
Tender and Proposal Development
Research institutions often require additional support to be positioned with the best possible chance of winning contract research and education projects through tenders, proposals and bids. GrantEd provides support when internal client resources are limited. The services delivered by GrantEd help institutions prepare winning tender/proposal/bid responses through comprehensive project management, strategic content development, and editing and proofreading.
We’ve worked on and helped clients win tenders worth up to $40 million.
'I wanted to thank you and GrantEd for your assistance as we prepared our tender for submission to the Australian War College. I know winning this contract was due in no small way to the professional and timely advice and support you provided. I have no doubt working with GrantEd enhanced our tender greatly.'

"I found it very helpful to think through strategies for not just getting funding but building long-term partnerships - thinking of that as the end goal and breaking down practical steps along the way has changed my way of thinking about Cat 2/3 funding, for the better I think!"
