Linkage Projects 2020 Round 3 Announcement Banner

Grants Calendar

In recognition of this challenging period some ARC grant opportunities have been delayed to ensure stakeholders have adequate time to prepare, consider and submit applications.

Following targeted consultation with the research sector, including through webinars, and outreach meetings, dates in this calendar have been amended to allow for quality applications whilst recognising many institutions have a year-end shut down.

Dates have been updated for the Australian Laureate Fellowships 2022, Future Fellowships 2022 and Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) 2023 rounds.

Please also note:

  • Closing dates are staggered to allow applicants and university administrators adequate time to finalise applications.
  • Closing dates of the Australian Laureate Fellowships and Discovery Early Career Researcher Award have been separated to allow processing time (for Research Offices and the ARC).
  • In recognition of year-end shut down, no applications close for 3 weeks from 20 December 2021.
  • Dates avoid overlap with other government grant rounds.
  • Early career researchers have been granted additional time, with applications extended until February 2022.

Note:

  1. These are approximate dates and are subject to change.
  2. For all schemes the closing time for Requests Not to Assess, Applications Close and Rejoinders is 5:00 pm Canberra time on the dates provided.
