Awards and grants

Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards

The annual Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards recognise and reward good practice in the prevention or reduction of violence and other types of crime in Australia. The awards encourage public initiatives, and assist governments in identifying and developing practical projects which will reduce violence and other types of crime in the community.

Any government agency, not-for-profit organisation or individual person making a significant contribution to a project in Australia can be nominated for an award. Projects may address specific groups such as rural and remote communities, women, children, youth, family, migrant, ethnic or Indigenous communities, or specific problems such as alcohol-related violence.

Criminology Research Grants

The Criminology Research Grants (CRG) program provides funding for criminological research relevant to public policy at both the national and state or territory level. The program promotes the value and usefulness of such research by publishing and disseminating the findings of the funded work.

The CRG program is administered by the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) and funded by the Commonwealth and state and territory governments. Taking into account the recommendations of the Criminology Research Advisory Council, the Director of the AIC approves a number of research grants and other funded research projects each year.
