Criminology Research Grants program
The principal objectives of the Criminology Research Grants Program are to undertake and provide funding for criminological research which is relevant to public policy and to promote the value and use of such research.
The Australian Institute of Criminology invites applications from individuals or organisations seeking to undertake quality research which is relevant to both current and future criminal justice policy and makes a substantial and original contribution to criminological knowledge.
The Institute encourages applications from organisation or collaborative teams with a demonstrated capacity to deliver high quality criminology research outcomes.
The closing date for applications is Friday, 23 August 2013
As of July 1, 2011 some administrative changes to the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) and the Criminology Research Council (CRC), have come into effect:

- The CRC ceases, but the existing Council members become the new Advisory Council members
- The CRC Grants program is re-named as the Criminology Research Grants program – with no major change to the annual research grants process.
Further Information is available on the AIC website.
