National Science Week

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS GRANT ROUND HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED. THE TASMANIAN NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK COMMITTEE IS IN THE PROCESS OF DETERMINING AN ALTERNATIVE PROCESS GIVEN CURRENT PROJECTIONS THAT EVENTS AND PUBLIC GATHERINGS WILL STILL BE IMPACTED IN AUGUST. PLEASE CHECK BACK IN HERE OR ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE FOR UPDATES IN THE NEAR FUTURE. APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE AND TAKE CARE EVERYONE.

Secure up to $500 for your public National Science Week event this August. Events take many forms, creatively communicating how science is a vital part of our everyday lives by engaging an interest in the areas of science, technology, engineering and innovation.

To be eligible for the grant, your event needs to be open to the general public, and to take place in Tasmania (regional venues are encouraged!) between August 15-23 this year – though if your event is the week before or after these dates, don’t worry, you can still apply.

If you’re a school holding a private event (students and school community only, not open to everyone in the public), you must apply for an ASTA grant instead (check website for open and close dates).
