State Grants

The South Australia Community Event Grants Program supports SA community groups, organisations and businesses in celebrating science during National Science Week, this year from August 15-22.

South Australian Community Grants are open to community groups, organisations, and businesses, with funding available for metropolitan and regional online and in-person events.

Activities and events must meet at least one of the aims of National Science Week and you are encouraged to include innovative ways to bring science to new audiences this year. These may include, but are not limited to, applications for the following types of science engagement.

Applications for the 2021 SA Community Grants are now open – see the SA Community Grant Guidelines and download the SA Community Grant Application Form. Eligible organisations or individuals may apply for a grant up to $2500 for a project to be delivered during or close to National Science Week, 14-22 August 2021.

Applications should be sent by Friday 30 April 2021.

School Grants

The School Grant program offers up to $500 to preschools, primary schools and secondary schools to run an activity or event during National Science Week. A total of $90 000 is available each year across Australia.

Applicants are encouraged to focus on how science, engineering, technology and mathematics influence our lives, our economy, our society and our world. Successful projects are incredibly varied: some involve just a class, others the whole school and sometimes even neighbouring schools and the wider community.

The School Grant program is conducted by the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA) with support from the Australian Government.

Applications for the School Grant program are now open and close on 2 April 2021. For more information and to apply, head to the ASTA grants page.
