National Science Week 2024 Grants in WA

Inspiring WA, supported by the WA Coordinating Committee for National Science Week (WACC), opened applications for small grants of up to $4,000, and mid-tier grants of up to $15,000, to support new activities and projects which can engage the community with STEM.

Both grants are open to regional and metropolitan applicants. It is highly desirable that funded activities and projects work with, promote, or engage historically under-represented groups in STEM. Further grant criteria are outlined in the respective grant guidelines.

If you are unsure which grant you should apply for, contact Inspiring WA or get in touch with the WA Coordinating Committee who will be able to assist you. Additionally, if you are looking for support in developing an activity or project, get in touch with the committee.
