National Competitive Grants Program
Discovery Indigenous Funding Rules
The Australian Research Council Act 2001 requires the ARC to prepare funding rules for each funding scheme it administers for each calendar year. Funding rules provide applicants with information about a scheme, eligibility requirements, the application, selection and approval processes, and requirements for the administration of funding.
The Discovery Indigenous Funding Rules for funding commencing in 2014 are significantly different from the Discovery Indigenous Researcher Development Funding Rules for funding commencing in 2011 and previous years. It is strongly recommended that applicants carefully review the entire document.
