NSW Regional Science Grants awarded to science partnerships

The 2014 NSW Regional Science Grants program is now closed.

Funded by NSW Trade & Investment and the Commonwealth Department of Industry, the 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.

In 2014, grants worth $75,500 were made available to science engagement initiatives that brought together at least three individuals and organisations to create a Regional Science Hub.

Next year's funding program will be announced in early 2015.

Outreach grants are also available from the Australian Government and will be announced on the National Science Week website in late 2014. Check the national website for details.

Selection criteria

Events and activities run by NSW Regional Science Hubs have enduring benefits and meet at least two of the following criteria:

  • Inspiring young people to pursue an interest or aptitude in science
  • Extending networks and partnership opportunities in the region
  • Encouraging community participation and feedback
  • Sharing science achievements and knowledge within the local community
  • Sustaining science activity without significant future grant funding.
