The first funding round for the Creative Young Stars Program is now open for applications.
The Creative Young Stars Program will make grants available for Federal Members of Parliament to provide financial assistance for students and young people (25 years and under). Grants of $500 are available for individuals and grants of $3000 are available for groups of six or more members.
There are four broad categories of activity that will be supported under the Program:
- creative and performing arts
- cultural activities
- academic endeavour
- school and community achievement
Eligible school students and young people (25 years and under) can apply for grants under this program. Anyone under 18 years will need a parent or guardian to apply on their behalf.
Applications close at 5pm AEST on Friday, 21 June 2013.
