CAAR is looking for projects that enhance Australia's economic, cultural and social relations with the Arab region (comprising the 22 countries and territories of the Arab League). Applicants should carefully read the Guidelines for Funding Applicants before submitting their application.
Proposals must demonstrate relevance to one or more of the Council's strategic objectives.
CAAR supports innovative projects that have clear outcomes and seeks to ensure the benefits of such activities are spread as widely as possible. The Council has a special focus on assisting the initiation of activities that are likely to prove self-sustaining.
The Council assesses grant applications on the likely benefits a project will bring, rather than the amount actually requested, and it therefore exercises some flexibility in the amounts disbursed as grants. While the level of grant funding will be decided according to the merits of the proposal, funding will generally be limited to a maximum of AUD 20,000 per grant. CAAR encourages applicants also to seek funding for their project from other sources.
All applicants should familiarise themselves with the documents below, before submitting a funding application.
