AUSIT Research Project Grants

AUSIT is committed to quality in translating and interpreting, and therefore encourages professional practice that is informed by empirical research. For this purpose, the National Council has approved a Research Project Grant scheme (ARPG), subject to funding approval in each year’s budget. The aim of the scheme is to fund or otherwise support applied research that can be used to inform and improve our members’ professional practice.

The fund can be used either towards a standalone project, or as part of an Australian Research Council Linkage grant in which AUSIT becomes a Linkage Partner. The maximum amount of the Research Project Grant, on the years when funding is available, is $5,000.
