Budget information included in funding proposals:

The salary of an Australian Research Council (ARC) Fellow must not be included as an in-kind contribution in the budget section of proposals to any ARC funding scheme.

ARC Fellowships are funded by the Commonwealth. The inclusion of an ARC Fellow salary as an organisational in-kind contribution may lead to a proposal being excluded and not recommended for funding.
