Research Grant Scheme

The UC Collaborative Indigenous Research Initiative Grants Scheme is a program of research funding established and approved by the Deputy Vice Chancellor Research portfolio (UC DVC-R) and administered by the UC CIRI Executive Committee. Funding for the program is based on the calendar year.

The scheme seeks to grow Indigenous research capacity at UC and to provide seed funding to projects that will generate outcomes with tangible benefits for Indigenous communities. Particular emphasis is given to providing opportunities for Indigenous researchers and Indigenous post-graduate students.

The UC CIRI Research Grants Scheme provides up to 2 years of seed funding for Indigenous research at UC. Its purpose is to grow research capacity at UC through initial support to projects which will go on to develop wider funding support.
