AARE Strategic Initiative Grant Expressions of Interest

AARE is calling for expressions of interest (EOI) from AARE members in undertaking projects aligned with the following areas of our Strategic Plan.

  1. Critical engagement (CE) - Provide forums for sharing of, and critical engagement with, knowledge in education
  2. Impact (I) - Promote the visibility and uptake of research evidence in educational policy and practice

Two grants between $5,000 and $10,000 each are available to assist with undertaking relevant projects. Funding is for the 2015 -2016 financial year but approved activities are to take place until December 2016.

EOI’s should address the requirements and use the EOI cover sheet  in a maximum of four A4 pages (11 point, single spaced) with the following cover page making up one of the pages. All EOI’s should include a detailed budget.

The EOI’s should be sent to by COB 30 November 2015
