career recovery grants

The veski inspiring women career recovery grants are designed for female mid-career leaders or emerging leaders in STEM in Victoria to provide vital and timely support via short-term flexible funding to boost research & help restore pre-pandemic competitiveness.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has compounded pre-existing gender inequality. Reduced work hours and work disruptions due to home & caring responsibilities have disproportionately affected women, threatening to wind back the hard-fought gains to achieve gender equity.

The veski inspiring women recovery grants will provide 12 months funding of up to $50,000 to boost research outputs and increase competitiveness when applying for future funding from major funding bodies.

The application round for the veski inspiring women career recovery grants in 2021 is now closed.
