Army History Research Grants

Applications for the Army History Research Grants are now open.

The Australian Army History Unit is now accepting applications for the 2022/23 Army History Research Grants Scheme. The Scheme is designed to support and encourage original research into the history of the Australian Army.

The AAHU values new or unique research that contributes to a deeper understanding of the history of the Australian Army and can contribute to Army’s current and future development and the professional military education of its members. Since its inception, the Scheme has supported over 300 researchers and has a strong record of accomplishment in delivering unique research that promotes and contributes to a deeper understanding of Army’s history. AAHU encourages applications from a broad field of researchers, either individually or as a team.

Grants are available up to a maximum amount of $15, 000 for one year. For significant research projects, multi-year grants are available for up $15, 000 per year for up to three consecutive years (to a maximum of $45, 000). As this Scheme involves the gifting of public monies, it undergoes a rigorous assessment and approval process and requires ministerial approval. The announcement of successful and unsuccessful applications can take 6-9 months from the closing date.
