Youth Encouragement Grants

Youth Encouragement Grants 2019/2020 are now open

Youth Encouragement Grants provide financial assistance for individuals competing at elite levels, as part of an affiliated state or national event or international activity/event in any of the following categories:

  • Sporting events;
  • Performing arts;
  • Visual arts;
  • Science and technology; and  
  • Other competitive events or activities.

Individual applications can be made for up to $150 towards the costs of competing nationally or $300 towards the costs of competing internationally.

Team applications can be made for up to $250 towards the costs of competing nationally or $500 towards the costs of competing internationally.

Priority will be given to young people who would otherwise have limited capacity to cover the costs associated with competing nationally or internationally and the grant is a contribution to the overall costs.

A further 20% funding consideration may be made for applicants with a Centrelink issued Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card.
