Attachment – Submission to Inquiry into Funding Australia’s Research

Overview –

CAPA makes three recommendations to the Funding Australia’s Research inquiry:
1. For Australian research funding to include an automatic entitlement to a four-year full-time (tax free) living stipend for all enrolled doctoral students;

2. That some research funding should be reserved for applications led by junior researchers; and

3. That research funding allocations should incentivise applications which include research students and ECRs.
