How to apply

The Program Guidelines for each funding round set out how applications will be assessed to make sure that all applicants are treated fairly and equally.  Agency employees and contractors (who are treated as agency staff) must abide by the Conflict of Interest Policy and the APS Values and Code of Conduct.  

Meeting the selection criteria and submitting an application does not guarantee funding.
