MQ New Staff Grant Reporting


The purpose of the Macquarie University New Staff Grant scheme (MQNS) is to facilitate the research interests of new academic staff (levels A & B only) or staff returning from parental leave.

The Chief Investigator (CI) should refer to the Funding Rules for information on type of report and due date. An email reminder will be sent to the CI approximately four weeks prior to the report due date.

Reports must be completed using the specified form (select from Resources below). All reports must be signed by the CI and may require additional signatures including the Mentor, the Head of Department, and Faculty Research Manager.

The purpose of the Reports is to collect information about the progress and outcomes of the research. Reports are assessed by the Research Office and the relevant Panel Chair. Failure to complete and submit reports may lead to grant holders being ineligible to apply for and receive further grants.

The fully signed report (hardcopy or scanned PDF) should reach Post-Award ( by the due date stated in the report email notification.
