We invite interested parties to submit applications to the Inspiring South Australia program for grant funding for community science engagement and science communication projects.

Applications are due 30th November 2020.

About the grants

These grants are open to applicants in SA regional and metropolitan communities to help bring the celebration of science to an increasing number of South Australians.

Grants of up to $5,000 may be used to support collaborative science engagement and/or science communication projects that will attract and engage new audiences in science. Eligible projects include:

  • Science Engagement projects that engage local and/or broader communities in science
  • Science Communication projects that communicate science to local and/or broader communities
  • Science-Arts projects that bring science and arts organisations/professionals together to explore and tell stories of science


Applications can be made by organisations, groups or entities willing to lead and coordinate the project.

While both face-to-face projects and virtual/online projects are welcomed, applicants must outline how the project would be delivered successfully should health guidelines/restrictions change.

The project is to be completed by 31st October 2021.
