ARC National Competitive Grants Program

Overview

The Australian Research Council (ARC) is a Commonwealth entity within the Australian Government. Its purpose is to "grow knowledge and innovation for the benefit of the Australian community through funding the highest quality research, assessing the quality, engagement and impact of research, and providing advice on research matters".

The ARC supports the highest-quality fundamental and applied research and research training across all disciplines outside of clinical and other medical research.

The ARC requires that researchers submit their applications for consideration via their institution's research office - at UniSA, this is the UniSA Research Office.
