ANROWS is calling for grant applications from researchers across Australia for its 2020–2022 ANROWS Core Grant Research Program.
Grants are available for projects that will investigate the impacts on and needs of children and young people who are exposed to violence against women, especially those from marginalised communities.
A total pool of $1.157 million is available. Funds for the 2020–2022 ANROWS Core Grant Research Program have been provided to ANROWS jointly by the Australian Government Department of Social Services and the governments of all states and territories.
Funding will be prioritised for projects focussing on effective strategies that prevent and respond to:
- the impacts of exposure to violence against women on children and young people in marginalised populations
- harmful sexual behaviours of children and young people
- violence against women perpetrated by children and young people.
The grants round will also seek applications for research projects that address intersections of inequality and disadvantage for marginalised populations.
ANROWS has identified these issues as an urgent research gap through Australia’s National Research Agenda to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2020–2022 (ANRA), which has also been released today. ANRA was developed through an extensive review of current literature and wide consultation with researchers and policymakers working on violence against women.
Funded projects are to commence in early 2021 and final reports, following peer review, are to be submitted no later than 31 March 2022.
Researchers can find further information about how to apply for the grants on the ANROWS website, and answers to your FAQs will be published here.
Applications will be accepted until 11:59pm (AEDT) Monday, 9 November 2020. No extensions will be granted.
