Australia-Korea Foundation


Individuals or organisations may apply for AKF grant funding. Where a conflict of interest exists, or may be perceived to exist, the AKF Secretariat should be contacted to clarify eligibility and/or obligations under Commonwealth conflict of interest guidelines.

Generally, the AKF does not fund projects over more than two successive years. The AKF Secretariat should be contacted to clarify eligibility if you have previously received an AKF grant.

If you have submitted an application in a previous AKF grant funding round but have been unsuccessful, you are encouraged to reapply for funding in future rounds.

Each applicant (individual or organisation) may submit one application per round. However, the Australia–Korea Foundation will accept multiple applications (to a maximum of three per organisation) from different areas/business units of large organisations such as universities.

Grants will not be provided to individuals or organisations that have failed to provide a proper acquittal of an earlier grant provided by the AKF.

The AKF does not fund other Commonwealth government agencies.
