What are the benefits?
IMPORTANT NOTE: In response to COVID-19 restrictions, we have made some temporary revisions to the AGRIG scheme. Graduate researchers may apply to this scheme for funding support for alternative research activities taking account of disruptions. Budget items supported including expenses for technical/logistic support related to remote fieldwork where it is impossible to use digital means (e.g. in a remote area, due to security issues etc.) or to pay for services for copying/reproduction of material provided by the institution; or which a third party could provide on your behalf. These temporary measures are for the 2020/2021 rounds ONLY and will be reviewed as restrictions ease.
The Arts Graduate Research International Grant (AGRIG) provides Faculty of Arts graduate researchers with assistance to travel overseas for at least two weeks to conduct research that is essential to the completion of their thesis, but do not meet the methodological or lengthy immersive research requirements of the PhD Fieldwork Grant Scheme. Short periods of fieldwork, archival research and other kinds of on-site data gathering all fall within the remit of the scheme.
Graduate researchers will be eligible to receive funding from either the AGRIG or the PhD Fieldwork Grant Scheme, but not both, during their candidature.
Please read these guidelines carefully before submitting an application. You should also consult the Graduate Research in Arts Travel Scheme (GRATS) and the PhD Fieldwork Grant Scheme to determine which is the most appropriate scheme for the purpose of your travel.
The maximum allowance over the duration of the candidature (whether in one long trip, or several repeat trips) is:
- Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) – $5,000
- Master by Research (MA) – $2,500
Schools are required to contribute a minimum of 25% of the total budget. Your School Funding will be the source of this contribution. A separate application for your School Funding contribution is not required.
