Australian Competitive Grants Register (ACGR)
About the ACGR
The ACGR lists schemes that provide competitive research grants to higher education providers (HEPs). The income HEPs receive from schemes listed on the ACGR is a metric used in driving the allocation of the Australian Government’s Research Block Grants (RBG).
Process for Applying for the 2014 ACGR
The Department is currently compiling the 2014 ACGR. The 2014 ACGR will list eligible schemes which provided funding in 2013, and eligible schemes which will provide funding in 2014.
If you wish your scheme to be added to the 2014 ACGR, please fill out the Application for Listing form |. Selection criteria for listing are included in the application form.
Please note a separate application form will need to be completed for each scheme.
Applications for listing on the 2014 Draft ACGR will be accepted until 5pm, Friday 18 October 2013 (Australian Eastern Daylight Time).
HEPs will be provided with a draft list of schemes prior to the finalisation of the ACGR. This will allow HEPs to identify schemes which may have been omitted and encourage relevant scheme managers to apply before the 2014 ACGR is finalised.
If you believe that the funding scheme complies with all ACGR criteria, please sign and date the declaration, and either email the form to RBGrants@innovation.gov.au or fax the form to (02) 6213 7983.
The Department will advise applicants of their listing status at the conclusion of the ACGR update.
