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 institution's research office. At UQ, this is the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) within UQ Research and Innovation (UQ R&I).

OSR is also responsible for the central administration of successful ARC grants, including grant establishment, lodgement of post-award variations and non-financial ARC reporting
