Monash University: Monash leads the way in latest round of ARC Funding Grants

Monash has maintained its strong performance in the latest round of Australian Research Council funding, with more than $29.7 million shared across 65 ARC Discovery Projects.

Approved in December 2021, Monash has the highest number of projects from any university in Victoria funded through the scheme, which has allocated $258.6 million for 587 new projects across Australia over the next five years.

ARC Discovery Projects provide funding to support excellent basic and applied research projects to be undertaken by individual researchers or research teams.

Monash University President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Gardner AC said the number of projects funded in the latest round of ARC Discovery Projects grants reflected the strength and diversity of the University’s academic research.

“Monash has a strong focus on research that leads to long-term impact, with many projects addressing the significant global issues of our time. I congratulate all the recipients of these grants, which will enable their important work to progress,” Professor Gardner said.

Monash Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research Professor Rebekah Brown said Monash’s strong performance in such a competitive funding environment is a testament to the quality of research.

“It is wonderful to see such a diverse range of projects from different disciplines, faculties and schools receive funding, enhancing our reputation as a comprehensive university with a breadth and depth of research talent. We are very happy to see so many Monash projects funded.”
