The Research Committee reserves the right to award higher level grants in exceptional cases, subject to the quality of the research project and independent assessment reports. Candidates who submit the full budget requirements of their projects are asked to please prioritise items.
Candidates are also asked to please note that the funding will be directed to support medical scientists and clinicians who are at an early stage of their research career.

The Raine Research Committee wishes to provide Priming Grants for medical research scientists at an early stage in their career, particularly for those who are progressing towards an independent research career to assist them to become more competitive for national and international peer-review grants.
