Medicine / Science – Status

Changes to selection procedures for the CASS Medicine/Science Grants

For some years, The CASS Foundation (CASS) has restricted applications for Medicine/Science Grants to Victorian-based research organisations. This restriction will continue. CASS seeks to reduce the large number of applications received each year and to achieve an acceptable ratio of successful applications to the total received.

Following a two-year trial and review of selection procedures, CASS has published revised Guidelines for 2017 Medicine/Science Grant applications.

The 2017 CASS Medicine/Science application portal will open on 25 August 2017.

Applications close on 15 September 2017.

If any member of a research centre in Victoria wishes to discuss the revised Guidelines, they should contact Mr David Abraham AM, Executive Director, at CASS.
