Applicant Feedback

One of the ARC’s priorities, as outlined in the ARC Strategy 2022-2025, is to strengthen our engagement with the research sector and listen to your needs.

The ARC recognises that all applicants benefit from feedback to identify areas of improvement for future applications. The ARC has worked with university research offices to support the implementation of this initiative.

To coincide with all future funding announcements, the ARC will provide both successful and unsuccessful eligible applicants with extra details about their results. 

Commencing with funding announcements from March 2024, applicants will be able to access their scores within the Research Management System, along with detailed assessments, when outcomes of the scheme are announced.

Specifically, all applicants will receive the following information:

  • Banded feedback
  • Detailed Assessors’ scores, assessments and rankings, and
  • General Assessors’ scores and rankings

In keeping with peer review principles, assessors will remain anonymous.
