The Academy’s long-standing Workshop Program provides small grants to support interdisciplinary meetings discussing contemporary policy or research issues of interest to the social sciences. The workshops usually run for two-days and involve around 20 invited experts; mostly from the research sector, but also where relevant from government, the community sector or industry. It is a condition of funding that workshops are gender balanced in terms of spekaers and participants, and include at least two early career researchers.

Each workshop supported by the Academy must also produce a report for online or physical publication by the Academy.

Workshop Funding and Applications

The Academy supports up to eight workshops each year with funding to a maximum of $7,500 (excl GST) for workshop costs, and $1,500 (excl GST) for production of a report. Applicants are encouraged to seek matching or additional funding from universities or other parties, and welcomes co-badging.
