ADRAS is the key component of the AusAID Research Strategy 2012-2016. The purpose of ADRAS is to improve the quality and effectiveness of Australian aid in developing countries. AusAID promotes fairness, transparency and value for money from our research investment including through the use of competitive mechanisms to fund research.

The ADRAS is designed to attract high quality, innovative research that informs policy development.

The 2012 funding round will allocate funding for research in the following priority theme areas:
  • Africa
  • Disability-inclusive Development
  • Education
  • Gender
  • Health
  • Mining for Development
  • Scholarships
  • Water, Sanitation & Hygiene
The Funding Round is open to all Australian and international not-for-profit institutions or organisations where research is a core component of the 4 organisation’s mandate and where the organisation has a demonstrated capacity to carry out quality research and manage grant funds according to AusAID’s policies. The funding round will accept proposals of up to three years in duration except under the Africa theme which will be up to two years duration.

Successful projects are eligible to receive funding between AUD200,000 and AUD400,000 per year.
