Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) - Category 1 grants available for research into violence against women

Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) has just released our Research Priorities 2017-19 grants round. This multi-million dollar round has Australian Competitive Grants Register Category 1 status.

Jointly funded by Australia’s Commonwealth, state and territory governments, ANROWS was established in 2013 to undertake research aimed at addressing the high rates of domestic, family and sexual violence against women and their children and improving outcomes for victims. ANROWS works with governments and non-government agencies, researchers, and practitioners to undertake high quality research that aims to influence policy, service provision and professional practice.

The round is now open and closes 5pm AEDT 31 March 2017.

In recognition of the need to support early career researchers (ECR), ANROWS has a dedicated ECR stream in the current grants round. For a project to be considered for this stream, the research must be led by a ECR Principal Chief Investigator. Applications for the ECR stream will be compared to other ECR applicants (rather than the full group of applications).

Topics build on the work ANROWS has done since 2013, as well as taking into account recommended research areas identified through recent state and federal government and royal commission inquiries. A full topic list and Information for Applicants pack is available at

This funding round has a focus on intersectionality and applications need to demonstrate a consideration of priority populations (such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, women with disability and culturally and linguistically diverse women) to be eligible for funding.

ANROWS will work to ensure a robust program with a balance between small, medium and large sized projects. Historically, most researchers have applied for larger grants, which means that smaller projects may be more competitive.
