Successful grant recipients 2017-18

The Australia-China Council (ACC) is pleased to announce the successful grant recipients for 2017-18.

The ACC awarded funding to 34 projects in the strategic priority areas of Arts and Culture, Education, Economic Diplomacy and Australian Studies in China.

The ACC Chair, the Hon Warwick Smith AM, said:

"I am excited that the Foreign Minister has announced the results of the 2017-18 grant round. The ACC received 215 outstanding applications with the total requested funding of over $7.6 million, and it was difficult for the Board to narrow the field down to only 34 successful grantees. I congratulate all the successful grant recipients, and thank everyone who applied for their commitment to furthering Australia's relationship with China. Since the ACC was founded in 1978, its grants have supported hundreds of significant projects that have helped establish important people-to-people and cultural links."
