Australian Antarctic Science (AAS) Grants support high-quality research projects which will make a significant contribution to Australia's Antarctic research program. Proposals can be for research to be carried out in Antarctica (including the sub-antarctic) or Australia, and should be compatible with the program planned for the season.
The priority programs are:
- Ice, Ocean, Atmosphere and Climate
- Southern Ocean Ecosystems
- Adaptation to Environmental Change and
- Impact of Human Activities in Antarctica.
To be eligible for an AAS Grant, projects should contribute to the goals of the Science Strategy.
The maximum level of funding for an individual grant is $30,000 (GST exclusive).
