NCGP Trends: Success Rates
Success rates are defined as the percentage of grant applications received that are funded. The number of grants awarded under most NCGP funding schemes is not defined (except the fellowship schemes).
With these interactive graphs, you can view data on funding by field of research using the drop-down filters and click elements. Selecting an element in one interactive graph or table may affect what you see in another graph or table within the same tab. This visualisation is shown over multiple tabs, click the < > arrows to navigate between tabs. The text will update depending on the filters selected. Press the ‘reset filters’ button to remove all selections made.

To note: only includes announced grants.
Understanding the data
Scheme Round Start Year is used in the calculation of the success rate of a particular scheme round. The total number of projects by Scheme Round Start Year will be different to other NCGP trends visualisations that were based on funding commencement year. For example, due to Linkage Projects being continuous, with multiple rounds, the funding commencement year will not always align with the scheme round year for each round.
The research discipline allocated to a project is identified by the researcher in the project application. Whether a project is identified as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) or Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) is defined using ARC methodology based on the fields of research allocated to an application.
Full details can be found in the scheme round selection reports.
