ARC Special Research Initiative (SRI) for Australian Society, History and Culture Funding

Supporting excellent research and strengthening research capacity in Australian society, history and culture—this is the fundamental vision of the Special Research Initiative for Australian Society, History and Culture grant.

This grant provides an opportunity to researchers delving into all aspects of Australian society, history and culture, from ancient Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander beginnings to modern-day Australia. Research can be in a range of diverse areas of Australian life including community, institutions, literature, art, music, philosophy, language, media, politics and geography.

Research funded through this grant is intended to provide a greater understanding about modern Australia, including its origins and the events that have shaped it. The grant will fund up to a total of $12 million for up to three years, and will be available to support research grants with funding between $20,000 and $100,000 per year.

From CHL’s perspective, the themes covered by this grant—languages, culture, community, media, history and more— couldn’t be more apt. Please do tap the immense potential this grant presents for your research vision and goals.
