ARC Discovery Early Career Research Awards (DECRA)

The Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) scheme is a separate element of the Discovery Program. It aims to provide more focused support for researchers and create more opportunities for early-career researchers in both teaching and research, and research-only positions.
