National Office

Do you have a great idea for an event in the ACT for this year’s National Science Week? Have you always wanted to host an event but not been sure where to start? Applications are now open for seed grants of up to $1000 to boost your event and all you need to do is submit a brief application by May 26.

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 take place in the ACT as part of National Scince Week this year.

If you’re approved for the grant you’ll also get support from the ACT National Science Week Committee with event planning, promotion and more.

Applications need to include:

  • An overview of the project aims and expected outcomes;
  • Details of how the project will be delivered; and
