Australia's 55,000 registered charities share $134.5b in annual income, employ 1.2 million staff, and shape social life and wellbeing. The Scientia Scholar will use new complex datasets, including charities' Annual Information Statements, to generate new understandings of the contribution and diversity of Australia's charities, and their role in innovation, social impact and change. Topics may relate to charity finances; measuring impact; charities in cross-national perspective; women in the charity sector; dynamics of charities' growth and change; models of charity regulation; leadership and governance; a subset of charities; or a related topic.
