Aim

The ARC Discovery Indigenous scheme provides funding to Administering Organisations to support research programmes led by an Indigenous Australian researcher and build research capacity of higher degree research and early career researchers.

The objectives of the scheme are to:

  • support excellent basic and applied research and research training by Indigenous Australian researchers as individuals and as teams
  • develop the research expertise of Indigenous Australian researchers
  • support and retain established Indigenous Australian researchers in Australian higher education institutions
  • expand Australia’s knowledge base and research capability.
Funding

The minimum level of funding provided by the ARC is $30,000 per year, with a maximum of $500,000 per year. Projects may be applied for and awarded funding for up to five consecutive years. Direct costs may be applied for, including for example personnel, equipment, maintenance, teaching relief, and travel.

Faculty Processes

The Faculties have their own approval and review processes for grants under this scheme.
