Through our annual competitive grants program, the Australia-China Council supports projects across China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and Australia that deliver tangible outcomes for Australia-China relations in the priority areas of Economics and Trade, Society and Culture and Education and Science, in line with the Council’s Strategic Plan 2011-14 and recommendations of the Australia in the Asian Century White Paper.

General Funding Grants
The Australia-China Council grants are intended to provide seed funds for innovative proposals relevant to the mission and goals of the Council (see the Council’s Strategic Plan 2011-14). This includes proposals which demonstrate the potential for the development of long-term links between individuals and institutions in Australia and counterparts throughout China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
The Council's grant application process is in two stages. The first stage involves applicants submitting an Expression of Interest online. The Council Board then short lists Expressions of Interest and invites selected applicants to proceed to the second stage and submit a Full Grant Application online.
Following the assessment of the Expressions of Interest by the Board of the Australia-China Council, a short list will be determined. Those short listed will be contacted and invited to submit a full grant application online. Those who are not short listed will be notified in writing.
All applicants for Council funding will be advised in writing of the outcome of their application. Successful applicants will receive the Council's Funding Agreement and will be advised of any additional special conditions which the ACC may specify for the grant.
The Council will normally hold one grant round each year, opening around late January-February.
