Grants

The Tasmanian National Science Week Seed Grants 2019 are now CLOSED. If you have received a grant, please upload your event to be included in the printed program which is distributed state-wide. Please ensure you also upload the event to the National Science Week website. New users will need to create an account and previous users can log in using existing credentials. These two steps will ensure your event has the benefit of the National Science Week Tasmania Coordinating Committee promotions and marketing network which delivers information on your event to thousands of Tasmanians.
