Victorian ‘Seed’ Grants
Grant round generally opens in late March each year to support events held in the same calendar year. Please check this website for updates and announcements.
These grants are designed to support individuals and organisations who wish to run public science events and activities within Victoria during National Science Week. Regional and rural events, and events involving the collaboration of two or more organisations from different sectors or disciplines are assessed favourably.
Grant amount is typically $500 inc. GST, allowing event-holders to kick start their events and gain further support from host or partner organisations to bring more resources into the mix, if required. Applications are assessed by the Victorian Coordinating Committee.
Please note: these grants are for public engagement and not available for school events in Science Week (for school activities please refer to the National Science Week School Grants above).
