About the scholarship

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child is the world’s first research centre dedicated to creating positive digital childhoods for all Australian children.

Children are growing, learning and connecting with digital technology that’s rapidly evolving and changing. Australians are asking: How can technology help my child learn? How do I know good digital engagement from bad? How much technology is safe for my child? How do I keep my child safe online?

Our vision is to ensure young children grow up healthy, connected, and educated in a rapidly changing digital world.

Our program of research will help answer these questions for all Australians who look out for the health, education and happiness of young children, including parents and caregivers; teachers and educators; government and policy makers; and community and business organisations.

We are funded by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council, in addition to monetary and in-kind contributions from our partners.
