Community engagement grants

The Indigenous Knowledge Institute (IKI) 2023 Community Engagement Grants funding round is now open and will close COB Monday 3 October 2022.

The Institute invites proposals to support academics with a new research idea to test, explore, and develop it in partnership with members of Indigenous communities.

The Community Engagement Grants will be awarded to researchers/research teams who are building equitable partnerships with Indigenous communities at a grassroots level.

The funding will enable the researcher to develop interdisciplinary and community-engaged networks within and external to the University. The scheme aims to support research ideas that may lead to a proposal for future rounds of the IKI’s Seed Funding program.

All University of Melbourne researchers are eligible to apply for this funding opportunity for projects up to a maximum of $3,000. Further guidance on eligibility is detailed in the Community Engagement Grants Information Pack.

IKI staff are available to assist you in your application and encourage you to contact Indigenous‐knowledge@unimelb.edu.au to discuss your proposal before submitting an application.
