Funding and support
The MDI is committed to supporting disability research at the University of Melbourne and in the broader sector. Researchers and community organisations can apply for funding to support pilot projects, community-led projects, events and research translation.
Researchers applying for Fellowships or large grants are encouraged to get in touch to discuss ways in which the MDI can contribute to help strengthen applications. Contact Tessa de Vries at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Community-based Research Scheme supports the evaluation and research of innovative ideas in the broader disability community.
Funding and network support to research programs which have reached ‘critical mass’ of knowledge which would benefit from targeted knowledge translation.
Funding to support events that share disability research findings, exchange knowledge and bring people together.
