Show close time for other time zones
Established in 1993, the Australian Army History Research Grants Scheme supports and encourages research into the Australian Army’s history and development both on operations and during peace. The Scheme is open to both academic and non-academic researchers, and individual grants are up to a maximum of $15,000.00 for one year and up to $45,000 for three years.
The Australian Army and Australian Army History Unit (AAHU) values new research that identifies how Army specifically has approached challenges in the past, and which is accessible to both Army and the public.
Since its inception, the Scheme has supported over 300 applicants and has a strong track record of delivering unique research that promotes Army’s history and preserves Army’s heritage by encouraging applications from a broad spectrum of researchers. As this Scheme involves the gifting of public monies, it undergoes a rigorous approval process and requires ministerial approval.
From $1.00 to $45,000.00
The scheme is administered by the Australian Army on the advice of an Independent Assessment Panel specially convened for the purpose. The Panel comprises a diverse range of subject matter experts, including academics, military historians, and current serving Army personnel. All applications should be submitted electronically. Application forms are available on the Australian Army History Unit’s website: https://www.army.gov.au/our-history/australian-army-history-unit/army-history-research-grants
Potential applicants are advised to read the Guidance to Applicants, Draft Funding Agreement, and FAQS which are available on the Army History Unit’s website, before submitting an application: https://www.army.gov.au/our-history/australian-army-history-unit/army-history-research-grants
