The Strategic Policy Grants Program aims to deliver outcomes that support Defence policy objectives to improve and increase the strategic policy workforce’s capability to deliver high quality policy advice to Defence and Government. As such, the Program will prioritise funding proposals that support the following outcomes:

  • Increase the amount and quality of discourse, debate and research on Australian Defence strategic policy issues of priority interest and strategic relevance to generate new insights, concepts, understandings and policy solutions; and,
  • Deliver professional development opportunities to the strategic policy workforce with a view to enhancing their subject matter, tradecraft and leadership knowledge, skills and abilities.




  • Individuals must apply on behalf of the organisation with which they are affiliated, such as a university, not-for-profit organisation, or research institution.

  • Joint applications are welcome, contingent upon any consortium having a lead organisation[1]. To be a lead, an applicant must designate the main contact and/or project manager.

  • International applicants are eligible, provided they can demonstrate the qualifications, skills and necessary background for the topic and activity proposed.


[1] The Australian Government recognises that some organisations may seek to form consortia in order to apply for a grant under the Program. Consortia are eligible to apply and the relevant conditions applicable to consortia are at 7.6 ‘Grant Applications from Consortia’
