Australia-China Council Grants

16 August 2017

The Australia-China Council (ACC) is the Australian Government’s advisory and funding body dedicated to strengthening of cultural, education, business, and more broadly, people-to-people relations between Australia and China.

In 2017/18 we will deliver over A$800,000 in grants for organisations and individuals across Australia. The Council’s funding is determined by the Government, and is subject to the scope and availability of funding in each financial year.

Through our annual competitive grants program, the Australia-China Council supports projects across Australia and China that broaden and strengthen Australia-China relations in education, business, culture and the arts.

The Australia-China Council provides grant funding of up to $40,000 for innovative proposals relevant to the objectives of the Australia-China Council (as outlined in the current strategic plan and grant guidelines). The Council will normally hold one grant round each year, opening in February.

We congratulate the 34 successful grant recipients.
