Advance Queensland $10k Engaging Science Grants

Advance Queensland $10k Engaging Science Grants

To coincide with National Science Week (13-21 August 2016) the Palaszczuk Government have announced the Advance Queensland Engaging Science Grants program.

The Engaging Science Grants are part of the Advance Queensland Engaging Queenslanders in Science (PDF, 1,652KB) strategy with a vision to create a Queensland population that engages in, recognises, supports, and advocates for science.

The grants are designed to support scientists, researchers, science communicators, journalists, teachers, organisations and community groups to develop and deliver science engagement and communication projects, events and activities that align with this vision.

Individuals and organisations can apply for any amount of funding up to $10,000 if their activity or project encourages the study of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects, builds a better understanding of science, or improves community engagement with science.
