The Council for Australian-Arab Relations (CAAR) is now inviting applications under its 2014-15 grant funding round.  The CAAR is looking for projects that enhance Australia's economic, cultural and social relations with the Arab world.

The CAAR is seeking quality applications in the following priority sectors:
-     Education
-     Resources and Energy
-     Infrastructure
-     Health Care
-     Food Security
-     Tourism
-     Sport
-     Business and Trade

Grants are intended to provide seed funds for innovative projects which develop long-term people-to-people and institutional links between Australia and the Arab world.  To assist with this endeavour, the CAAR has initiated an International Speakers Program to enable the two-way movement of experts to present at conferences and events.  The CAAR 2014-15 grant funding round also has a strong focus on economic diplomacy.

While the level of grant funding will be decided according to the merits of the proposal, previous grants have been in the range of $10,000 to $50,000.
The grant round closes on 20 August.  Applicants should carefully read the Guidelines for Funding Applicants available at http://www.dfat.gov.au/caar/grants/grant_guidelines.html before submitting their application.
