Telematics Trust 2021 Grant Round
Telematics Trust calls for applications that demonstrate innovative use of technology through education and training
2021 grant round opens 6 September 2021
For over 30 years, the Trust has been committed to supporting organisations that seek to demonstrate innovative use of technology through education and training.
The Trust aims to fund initiatives that achieve its vision, by demonstrating innovative use of technology through education and training which aim to measurably improve the well-being of the community and environment. Projects should also use technology to reach diverse groups and address important practical problems in our community and environment.
To achieve this, the Trust provides unique funding opportunities to individuals, educational institutes, government, business, not for profit organisations and social enterprises that aim to foster innovation in education, support the use of new technologies and promote Victorian lead initiatives that benefit Victorian communities.
The Trust recognises that solving the most pressing challenges requires collaboration and team work. Those seeking funding from the Trust must have some level of partnership funding, be it cash or in-kind support.
The Trust and an independent group of reviewers will work together to select the most promising proposals.
The Trust provides grants of up to $50,000.
The quality of the applicant and their ability to deliver the project, and;
* the promotion of public education and training in Victoria;
* an important innovation or the solution to an important practical problem; and
