Australian Research Council

Australian Research Council (ARC) funding is competitively awarded to researchers working in all academic fields except health and medical research. 

The ARC requires researchers to submit grant applications via their institutition's research office. At UQ, this is the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) within UQ Research and Innovation (UQR&I).

The OSR is also responsible for the central administration of successful ARC grants, including grant establishment and lodgement of post-award variations and ARC progress and final reports. 

ARC scheme information

UQR&I has a dedicated scheme page for each individual ARC funding scheme with useful information and resources to assist researchers.
