Each calendar year the Australian Geographic Society (AGS) offers sponsorships of up to $10,000 to community projects to assist with conservation and environmental initiatives, often at a grassroots level; as well as Australian adventurers, and scientific and environmental research.
Australian scientists, community organisations and individuals developing projects in Australia and abroad are welcome to apply for Society sponsorship.
Each application will be assessed against the following criteria:
- What is the aim of the project/event?
- How will the project/event benefit the local community/Australians?
- Is the project consistent with the aims of the Society?
- How will the recipient communicate the goals of the project to a wide audience?
Rounds close: 30 April & 30 November 2019.
