The latest ADRAS round awarded 50 grants, totalling $32.9 million over three years, within the following themes:

  • Africa
  • Disability-inclusive development
  • Education
  • Gender
  • Health
  • Mining for development
  • Scholarships
  • Water, sanitation and hygiene.

In 2012, ADRAS Research Selection Committees shortlisted 102 applications from 581 submissions, which were then externally peer reviewed, with comments also received from departmental program staff. Read feedback from the Research Selection Committees on each theme.
