Competitive Grants 

AARE offers up to ten $5000 grants per annum, available to SIGs on a competitive basis.

SIGs can combine to apply for a grant of up to $10,000 but each SIG can apply for only one competitive grant per year (whether as the sole or a joint applicant).

These grants are primarily intended as a means of supporting SIGs to contribute to the scholarly research capacity of their members. Competitive grants may used for purposes such as hosting an international speaker to present in the SIG strand at the annual AARE conference, to hold workshops, seminars or master classes for members of the relevant SIG, or to host a scholarly event such as a small conference or symposium. AARE welcomes innovative approaches to building research capacity, and applications for competitive grants will be assessed on merit.

Competitive grants will have a single round of funding per annum, with all applications due by May 31. Funds awarded are to be expended, and a report provided to AARE by 30 June the following year.

Competitive grants are subject to the following criteria:

  • competitive funding must be used for the purposes of capacity building amongst SIG members
  • events or activities funded by competitive grants must be academic in nature, and should ideally be held on an academic site (eg, university or conference venue) 
  • events or activities funded by competitive grants should be open to all members of the relevant SIG

Queries regarding applications, or possible uses for competitive funding should be directed to the SIG Coordinator at sigs@aare.edu.au
