Supporting Documentation


NCMAS is continuing its participation in a National Trial of Anonymising Grant Proposals from the Office of the Women in STEM Ambassador. This Trial aims to assess whether the anonymised review of allocation proposals reduces unconscious bias in STEM grant programs. 

As in the 2021 round, applications for NCMAS2022 are required to be written in an anonymous third-person style (A3P).
