Research Priorities 2017-20 Grants round

Applications for funding were invited under the Research Priorities 2017-19 (now referred to as Research Priorities 2017-20) grants round from 19 December 2016 to 5pm AEDT 31 March 2017.

This grants round will support the implementation of the National Plan and reflect the priorities of the Third Action Plan of the National Plan. National Priority Areas for attention in the Third Action Plan are: 1. Prevention and early intervention. 2. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their children. 3. Greater support and choice. 4. Sexual violence. 5. Responding to children living with violence. 6. Keeping perpetrators accountable across all systems.

ANROWS invited researchers from across Australia to apply for the Research Priorities 2017-19 Grants. Proposals could be submitted by researchers including those from academic and research institutions and non-government organisations. Partnerships consisting of academic, government and non-government organisations were strongly encouraged, as this promotes and facilitates knowledge transfer and provides better opportunities for research findings to inform policy and practice.

Proposals needed to address the ANROWS Research Priorities 2017-19 topics, which are detailed in Information for Applicants pack. This funding round has a focus on intersectionality and  applications also needed to demonstrate a consideration of populations disproportionately affected by violence against women to be eligible for funding.

Grants are awarded to project proposals based on merit, determined by the ANROWS Board based on recommendations from a peer-review selection process. 

This grants round is listed on the Australian Competitive Grants Register, as a Category 1 Grants program.

Further information is also available through the Frequently Asked Questions.

Applications closed at 5pm AEDT 31 March 2017.
