NSW Regional Science Grants program

Funded by the NSW Department of Industry and the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the NSW Regional Science Grants program aims to further develop the network of NSW Regional Science Hubs, local partnerships that bring together multidisciplinary teams to develop and deliver high-profile science events in NSW.

See the NSW Regional Science Hubs Terms of Reference for more information.

In 2015, grants of just under $80,000 were made to NSW Regional Science Hubs to support science engagament initiatives held during National Science Week (15-23 August 2015) and at other times of the year. Find out more about the 2015 grant recipients.

Further funds of $40,000 were provided to support 2016 science engagagement initiatives that target those aged 18-35. Find out more about the 2016 year round engagement grant recipients.

Another NSW Regional Science Grants round will be announced in early March 2016.

Inspiring Australia’s long-term vision for NSW Regional Science Hubs is to build enduring partnerships that in time can become self-sustaining. All grant applicants will therefore be asked to consider how they intend to become self-supporting in the longer term.
