UPDATE November 2014: I created this list in 2013 and I haven’t checked the currency of the details contained within, especially dates.

This is a list of Australian ecology grants and funding bodies that I keep in my email to share with colleagues from time to time. I thought it would be a useful online resource, so here it is! I will place a permanent link in the sidebar on my home page.

This list is intended to be terrestrial and dynamic in nature, if there is anything I’ve missed (especially plants) please leave a comment and I’ll add it to the list. There are also many other local/regional or state based opportunities that are beyond the scope of this list. I wrote this list in 2013 and some details (especially dates) may change from year to year. Happy hunting!
