Looking for Research Funding?

CSU subscribes to a searchable funding database called Research Professional, which offers up-to-date detail of funding opportunities from over 600 sources 'eligibility-verified' for Australian researchers.  You can access Research Professional here.  (**Log in: Password is your CSU email address. You can then reset your password when you first log in.)  Faculty librarians are also available for training and assistance in use of the Research Professional database.

Did you know that you can view details of your external research projects online?  Research Master (RM)  presents information on your applications and successfully funded projects (those active at any stage since mid 2011) – including for funded projects detail of milestones, budgets, income received, expenditure and links to contracts and other documents.  (Please note that RM does not provide detail of any internally funded projects, such as Faculty Seed Grants or Compacts Schemes).

Log on to RM at My Research.  (Need help?  See here).
