NFP Grants for Innovative Education
Wednesday, 6th August 2014 at 3:15 pm

Grants of up to $30,000 from charitable trust, the Telematics Trust, are now open for Not for Profits working on innovative educational projects in Victoria.

According to the Trust, the Telematics Course Development Fund is committed to the development and use of new information and communication technologies that support innovative educational initiatives within Victoria.

“The Trust requires that all projects provide some level of partnership funding whether it be cash or in-kind support,” it said.

“The Trust provides grants of up to $30,000 but will consider applications for larger grant requests in exceptional circumstances.”

The Trust is also offering loans of up to $100,000.

The loan assessment criteria includes: the quality of the applicant and their ability to deliver the project; the excellence of the proposed project and the likelihood that it will lead to:  the promotion of public education and training in Victoria; an important innovation or the solution to an important practical problem; economic or social benefit to Victoria; and where a loan is requested, all of the above plus: sufficient financial return to repay the loan.

The Trust said all projects must be based in Victoria and be for the benefit of Victoria and Victorians; be education and/or training driven and market oriented; and have applicant partnership funding in either cash or in-kind.

“Only one application can be considered per applicant,” the Trust said.

“Exceptions are made when multiple applications are received from universities and other large organisations where they represent different faculties, departments or schools, and the proposals are unrelated.”

Further information about the Telematics Trust and for an application form, visit www.telematics.org.au.

The Trust meets twice yearly.  The next closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday, August 25.
