support and retain established Indigenous Australian researchers in Australian higher education institutions
expand Australia's knowledge base and research capability
1. Each College deals with a different volume of applications, offers different services and has a different internal deadline.
Contact your College Research Office to advise of your intent to submit an application.
Ensure you are informed of internal deadlines and obtain any resources available to support you in preparing your application.
Please note: The Research Services Division (RSD) is the single point of contact with the ARC. If you have any questions contact your College Research Office.
2. Start your proposal in ARC's Research Management Sysytem (RMS).
Applications for ARC Discovery Indigenous typically open in RMS mid-December and close late March each year.
