Application for SIG Competitive Funding

  • For accountability reasons AARE cannot provide funds to individuals on behalf of SIGs. Funding will be provided in the form of reimbursement for expenses incurred, and will require submission of receipts for expenses claimed. All claims for reimbursement must be received before 15 June so that AARE can pay the reimbursement before 30 June in the relevant year.
  • Reporting requirements from previous funding rounds must be fulfilled before any further funding is requested. Details of past reporting for SIGs can be accessed by emailing

Key dates:

  • All applications are due COB 31 May
