Native Title Anthropologist Grant Program

The Australian Government is inviting applications via an open competitive process to apply to deliver services under the Indigenous Legal and Native Title Assistance Program across Australia from 2019-20 to 2021-22.

The key focus of this funding is to increase native title anthropology capacity by assisting mid to senior anthropologists to become ‘exemplary’ anthropologists. This facilitates native title parties having access to qualified and experienced anthropologists, to support the resolution of native title claims and the effective management of native title.

The program objective will be achieved through grants to promote collaboration amongst this specialist sector, including delivery of targeted training and professional development and increasing the expertise of those working in native title anthropology.

The Australian Government has announced that a total of $1.001m (GST exclusive) over three years is available for this grant opportunity, starting in 2019-20. There is no maximum grant amount but grants cannot exceed the amount of available funds. Applicants should consider that there is expected to be high demand for funding.

The intended outcomes of the program has three priorities:

1.   Professional development and support for native title anthropologists working in the native title sector, particularly mid to senior level native title anthropologists.

2.   Stronger linkages between academic and applied anthropological work, particularly for mid to senior native title anthropologists.

3.   Supporting mid to senior level native title anthropologists to continue to develop their technical skills through access to higher education courses.
