The Inspiring Australia Victoria (IAV) program seeks to increase year-round participation in science and develop new science engagement opportunities. As part of this, the IAV program now offers small grants ($500–$2000) to support organisations to deliver community science engagement programs and events.
What activities are eligible?
Grants are designed to support organisations seeking to run public science events and activities within Victoria. We particularly encourage applications for grants for regional and rural events, and events involving collaboration between two or more organisations from different sectors or disciplines.
Eligible activities include Lifelong Learning, Citizen Science, and Kids Science Clubs. Learn more about these type of activities by reading our “Ideas for Inspiring Australia Victoria Grants”.
Who can apply
In 2019 the Partnership Network Grants will be available to Victorian public libraries and the 10 Victorian Tech Schools who will be lead agencies for their Local Government Area (LGA). Other agencies interested in applying for a grant should contact their local library or Tech School to discuss guidance, support, or partnership.
