Transdisciplinary & Innovation grants

Applications for 2020 are closed

Transdisciplinary and Innovation Grants (TIGs) provide opportunities for cross-program collaboration at all levels, targeting projects that are innovative, link research across the CoEDL programs in new and unexpected ways, and lead to collaborative research outputs of high quality. The primary purpose of these grants is to showcase CoEDL’s essentially collaborative nature through new links between the research programs and threads.


TIGs are open to researchers who are CoEDL members or affiliates (but are not a Chief Investigator). This includes CoEDL Post-doctoral fellows and PhD students, Associate and Affiliate Investigators, and Partner Investigators. All applications must be endorsed by a Chief Investigator who agrees to receive and coordinate the grant funds, and oversee the project.

Please note: When applying please refer to the Centre's Indigenous Linguistics & Cultural Heritage Ethics Policy 2017.
