The Strategic Policy Grants Program (SPGP) aims to deliver outcomes that support Defence policy objectives to increase the strategic policy workforce’s capability to deliver high quality policy advice to Defence and the Australian Government.
Specifically, these outcomes are intended to increase the amount and quality of discourse, debate and research on Defence strategic policy issues, as well as to deliver more professional development opportunities to Defence’s strategic policy workforce.
In 2019, up to $3M will be available for the Strategic Policy Grants Program grant opportunity, subject to appropriation. There is no minimum or maximum amount that may be applied for.
Individuals must apply on behalf of the organisation with which they are affiliated, such as a university, not-for-profit organisation, or research institution.
Joint applications are welcome, contingent upon any consortium having a lead organisation. To be a lead, an applicant must designate the main contact and/or project manager.
International applicants are eligible, provided they can demonstrate the qualifications, skills and necessary background for the topic and activity proposed.
