  5. category five – for practising clinicians, public health, public service, allied health professionals, nurse, or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health members, worth AUD 175,000 per year for five years.

The PI can nominate a maximum of five co-investigators and an unlimited number of associate investigators. The PI and at least 50 per cent of the nominated co-investigators must reside in Australia throughout the funding period and be Australian citizens, have resident status or have an appropriate visa to work in Australia.
