La Trobe Asia Grants

La Trobe Asia regularly awards grants to La Trobe University researchers, to support research in Asian countries and themes, or support collaborations with Asia-based institutions across the entire University.

La Trobe Asia Research Grant Program

February 2018


In 2018, La Trobe Asia will disperse around $20,000 in small grants to support La Trobe University academics who hold Level A, B or C appointments and who research on or in the Asian region.

The grant program requires recipients to submit output/s to journals, which are eligible for the Publication Award Scheme (or a recognised high quality refereed journal) overseen by the DVC (R).

Eligibility and Requirements

All full-time and fractional academic staff at Level A, B or C are eligible to apply for the La Trobe Asia Research Grant program.  The 2018 grant program is NOT open to students or casual academic staff.

The research project must clearly meet at least ONE of these criteria:

(a) it examines some aspect of the social, political, cultural, linguistic, legal or historical dimensions of Asia’s states and/or peoples;

(b)   involves close collaboration with a partner based in an Asian institution; or

(c) requires Asia-based fieldwork or data collection.

The maximum amount for successful grants is $5,000 each. However, we put a strong emphasis on value for money and aim to distribute funds as widely as is reasonable.
