Research grants

The 2016 round of the Criminology Research Grants is now closed.

The Institute encourages applications from organisations or collaborative teams with a demonstrated capacity to deliver high quality criminological research outcomes.
The completed application must reach this office no later than the closing date of 12 August 2016. The outcomes will be advised in December 2016.
The CRG Administrator will acknowledge receipt for all applications. If you have not received acknowledgement of your application, please contact the Grants Administrator on 02 6243 6949 before COB on 12 August 2016 to confirm that it has been received.

Applications received after the 12 August 2016 closing date will not be considered.

Information for applicants

Applicants must be familiar with the funding agreement and the funding guidelines of the Criminology Research Grants program. The funding guidelines govern the application and assessment processes.

CRG research grants require an application to be completed using the application form, as well as other materials/documentation that must be submitted via PDF attachment.  Applications must be submitted as a Microsoft Word document by e-mail (please note, a fax is not acceptable).

CRG funding is provided to organisations, not individual researchers.
Applications for grants are highly competitive and funded applications are of a consistently high standard. In recent years, between 40 and 60 applications have been received, with an average of 10 percent receiving funding.

The outcome of the funding round will be published in the CRG Successful Grant Application no later than fourteen working days after the grant agreement for the grant takes effect, in accordance with the Commonwealth Grants Rules and Guidelines.
