I’m forwarding this announcement for the attention of NSW based ASC members:

 

NSW Trade & Investment's Office of Science and Research has opened the NSW Science Leveraging Fund – Science Outreach Program to support applications to the Commonwealth Inspiring Australia – Unlocking Australia's Potential Program.

The Science Outreach Program will offer NSW based applicants seeking funding under the Inspiring Australia program the opportunity to leverage financial support from the Commonwealth Government for NSW science outreach activities.

The Inspiring Australia - Unlocking Australia's Potential grants are about inspiring people with science by increasing the engagement of Australians in science, including a focus on people who may not have access to science engagement activities. Projects will represent a national mix of activities involving a variety of audiences, geographic locations and scientific topics. The grants round aims to inspire a program that focuses on priorities such as youth, Indigenous communities and regional Australia as well as other areas.
