The Grant Guidelines for the Discovery Program (2021 edition) are now available on GrantConnect.

Key dates for the Discovery Program schemes for funding commencing in 2022 and 2023 have been updated on the Grants Calendar available on the ARC website.

For further information regarding eligibility please see the ARC website

The eligibility requirements concerning PhD award dates are consistent with previous rounds of Discovery Early Career Researcher Award and Future Fellowships schemes and have not changed because of delayed scheme round opening.
