Funder:  Federal – Attorney General

Grant Background: The Australian Government is inviting applications via an open competitive process to apply to deliver services under the Indigenous Legal and Native Title Assistance Program, across Australia from 2019-20 to 2021-22.

The intended outcomes of the program has three priorities:

  1. Professional development and support for native title anthropologists working in the native title sector, particularly mid to senior level native title anthropologists.
  2. Stronger linkages between academic and applied anthropological work, particularly for mid to senior native title anthropologists.
  3. Supporting mid to senior level native title anthropologists to continue to develop their technical skills through access to higher education courses.
