The ARC is anticipating a delay to the opening dates for the following grant opportunities:

  • Discovery Projects for funding commencing in 2020
  • Discovery Indigenous for funding commencing in 2020 

When the new opening dates for these schemes are known, the ARC website and GrantConnect will be updated and the ARC will advise via a Network Message.


All accountable authorities and officials must use GrantConnect to publish all Grant Opportunities, all Grant Opportunity Guidelines and all addenda/alterations.

The ARC will no longer publish Grant Opportunity Guidelines (formerly known as Funding Rules) on our website.

While the Grant Guidelines are available to view, you will need to sign in or create a User Registration account in GrantConnect to access all relevant documentation for Grant Opportunities.

For further information on GrantConnect, please refer to the ARC GrantConnect information page or the GrantConnect website.
