Terms and conditions
Individual grants will be made to meet the costs of itemised components of an activity as outlined by the applicant, up to a maximum of AUD$2000.
The Society reserves the right to award several grants or none in any calendar year.
Applicants must be financial at the time of application, award and acquittal of the grant.
Applicants must not have received a grant within 3 previous calendar years.
Arlis/ANZ members may apply for a grant to supplement financial support from their institution, however preference will be given to applicants who are not able to access any other form of support.
Where an awardee wishes extends the time at an event or activity for personal reasons [for example, adding personal time onto a supported overseas study trip], Arlis/ANZ grant monies may only be used for 50% of the travel costs, and only for accommodation and per diem costs directly related to the supported event or activity.
Where more than one application is received during a grant cycle, preference will be given to events and activities directly relevant to or involving Arlis/ANZ institutions.
There are no limits on the number of times an Arlis/ANZ member may apply for any grant.
Awardees must report back to the Society on the outcomes of the supported activity. The form of the report back mechanism is flexible, but should be supplied within 3 months of the conclusion of the activity. Artefacts from the report back will be made available for the benefit of the wider Arlis/ANZ community via the website.
There are two grant cycles per year: End of January and end of June.
Call for applications: 7th January and June
Applications close: 25th January and June
Sub-committee convenes: 27th January and June
Applicants informed: 30th January and June
Members may apply to the National President to consider a grant application outside of the grant cycle, where there are special circumstances.
The award of grants is based on:
The strategic value of the event or activity to the Society.
The value of the event or activity to the member's current work role.
The number or monetary value of Arlis/ANZ grants applicant has previously received.
Evidence of the applicant’s commitment to the Society as demonstrated through, for example: a history of membership or contribution to the Society’s activities.

Applications are reviewed by a sub-committee made up of Arlis/ANZ members drawn from the Chapters and convened for the purpose.
