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 number of submissions received. Following a review of selection procedures, CASS has designated a list of relevant organisations which will be eligible to apply in alternate years.

Applications for the 2017 Medicine/Science Grants have now closed.

CASS has published provisional Guidelines for the 2018 Medicine/Science Grant round, for the information of prospective Applicants. However, these Guidelines may be subject to change and the final 2018 Medicine/Science Guidelines will be published in late July 2018.

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.
