Event seed grants available in Queensland

The Queensland National Science Week Coordinating Committee offers annual seed grants up to $2500 for activities undertaken during National Science Week (11 – 19 August 2018).

The aim of the grants is to increase community awareness, understanding and engagement with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) based activities during National Science Week in Queensland.

Eligibility

The event must be held in National Science Week.

Events aimed at the wider community, rather than a single organisation, will be preferred. School-based activities are ineligible unless they can demonstrate significant community partnerships, engagement and audiences.

Applications should address key criteria.
