1) Objective

The Australia & Pacific Science Foundation provides support, on a competitive basis, for the following activities: (1) the top priority is to encourage high quality research by scientists in Australian national or state institutions, and similar institutions in other countries of the South West Pacific; and (2) occasional support may also be given to such activities as training, publications or conferences. The Foundation seeks to complement, rather than compete with, other funding bodies.

Experience has shown that modest support can be particularly effective if used as “seed money” to initiate projects, which may subsequently expand and attract major funding from other sources. Foundation grants have also supported specific components of large projects financed primarily by other agencies.

2) Eligibility

Grants are awarded to institutions within Australia or other countries of the South West Pacific region for activities within those countries or within the region. Applications from students as project leaders are not accepted.

3) Location

Actions must be located in the Pacific.

4) Budget

Typically the APSF provides project grants up to A$15,000 per year for up to three years. Grants are made in annual installments, and payments are dependent upon the receipt of satisfactory annual reports and financial statements. An additional progress report is required six months after the start of the project. Salaries of technicians and research assistants may be supported, but normally grants do not cover the salaries of scientific research staff or stipends of students. Administrative overheads are not funded.

5) Application

The next round of applications will open on 15th January 2024 and will close on 1st March 2024, for new grants beginning in July 2024. Applicants will be advised of the outcome of their application by June.
