Bush Blitz Research Grants


The Bush Blitz Strategic Taxonomy Grants Scheme is no longer accepting applications for Research Grants, Capacity-Building Grants or Tactical Taxonomy Contracts.

Bush Blitz Research Grants were three-year grants and, as such, there was only one funding round for this grant funding component.

Bush Blitz Postdoctoral Fellows were given the opportunity to participate in up to three Bush Blitz surveys per year, with all logistical support and salary (for the duration of the field work) provided.


The Bush Blitz grant funding agreement sets out the reporting requirements and timeframes associated with the project for which funding was provided.

All funding recipients must report on the progress of their project to the Australian Biological Resource Study (ABRS) in accordance with the contract's requirements. Failure to meet these requirements may result in cancellation of the grant and the return of unspent funds.
