Research funding databases
Research funding databases where you can locate funding sources for your research projects
Research Professional is the University of Melbourne’s premier database for research funding opportunities and a source of international research policy and practice news.
The University of Melbourne uses Research Professional to send regular emails containing funding news and opportunities to researchers within each Faculty, as well as University-wide urgent information about major grants and funding schemes.
All academic staff members have a Research Professional account and when using a University of Melbourne computer you will not be asked to log into the system.
When off-campus, on the Research Professional home page, select ‘the University of Melbourne’ from the list and enter your University of Melbourne authentication information.
