Researcher Support

Our research community is supported to deliver research with purpose and impact through a range of state-of-the-art research facilities. These include our innovative laboratory for conducting controlled experiments and simulations in business and economics, the UNSW Business School Experimental Research Laboratory (Biz Lab), and access to one of Australia’s major research libraries, UNSW Library

We also offer a range of financial schemes and resources to support your wellbeing while you conduct your research with UNSW Business School. 

UNSW Library 

UNSW Library is a key resource supporting research activity at UNSW Business School. As one of Australia’s major research libraries, it offers extensive scholarly information resources, information technology and personalised services to help you achieve your research goals. These include research consultations and appointments with Outreach Librarians

UNSW Library also houses the Business Subject Guide, an easy to navigate list of the key business resources available from the library, sorted by specialisation area.  

Financial Schemes for Staff Researchers

As a researcher with UNSW Business School, you’ll be supported to undertake cutting-edge academic research through a range of internal and external grants.  

The internal grant scheme is designed to provide seed funding to support research that will ultimately be the subject of applications for funding from external schemes (e.g. the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery and Linkage programs). The grants are partly a mentoring mechanism to introduce junior members of staff, in particular early career researchers, to the procedures needed to successfully compete for larger external funding. Funding per grant is up to $25,000. 

In addition to support available from UNSW's Research Strategy and Partnerships Office and Grants Management Office, the Business School provides assistance to staff applying for external funding. Professor Alan Johnson provides seminars to assist researchers at the Business School interested in applying for ARC Grants. The ARC Application Incentive Scheme provides up to $2,000 to assist with the expenses associated with submitting an ARC or equivalent application. The grant readers program assists applicants in seeking feedback on their draft application prior to submission.

Financial Schemes for PhD Students 

Student research projects are supported through a range of generous scholarships, giving you a head start in your early research career. 

A number of Graduate Research Scholarships are available for domestic and international research students.  

The cost of travel associated with presenting research at international conferences may also be covered under the Postgraduate Research Student Support Scheme

A range of other scholarships are available through UNSW Business School. Visit the postgraduate research scholarships page for more information.  

Additional resources for research students can be found on the UNSW Graduate Research School website.
