Inspiring Australia Tasmanian Science Engagement Grants 2018
The Inspiring Australia strategy aims to deliver a more scientifically engaged Australia where:
• Australians are inspired by and value scientific endeavour
• Australia attracts increasing national and international interest in its science
• Australians critically engage with key scientific issues
• Young Australians are encouraged to pursue scientific studies and careers.
The Inspiring Australia Tasmanian Science Engagement Grants Program seeks to support businesses, organisations and individuals to undertake events and activities that enhance the Tasmanian community’s engagement in STEM.
In 2018, there will be two streams of funding available. To find out more and to apply:
Please note that this is a competitive grant round and applications will be assessed on a ‘value for money’ basis that balances the depth of science engagement and total reach (audience) against funds sought. For example, a 4 hour hands on workshop for 25 people would be considered of ‘higher value’ than a one hour lecture presentation for 25 people based on the assumption that a four hour workshop provides a higher level of engagement. Applications that deliver activity in regional areas will be looked upon favourably.
Projects in the $2,001 – $5,000 range need to demonstrate substantial engagement and reach.
