Up to $5,000 is available from Principals Projects Grant to support delivery of financial literacy education in the classroom.
Principals Projects Grant
ASIC’s MoneySmart Teaching program provides teachers with professional learning and classroom resources to support delivery of financial literacy education in the classroom.
The Principals Projects Grant opportunity supports the above program by providing grants to suitable Principals of Primary Schools to carry out grant activities related to their respective Principal Project to build consumer and financial literacy and capabilities of primary school aged children as well as the broader school communities.
The Principals Projects Grant opportunity is to provide grants to suitable Principals of Primary Schools to carry out grant activities related to their respective Principal Project to build consumer and financial literacy and capabilities of primary school aged children as well as the broader school communities.
The objectives and intended outcomes of this grant opportunity are:
- support better learning outcomes for primary school aged students in respect of their financial abilities
- contribute to the financial wellbeing of school communities, and
- for the composition of grantees in any rounds of this grant opportunity to broadly reflect the diverse range of primary schools in Australia in respect of geographical location and entity types, such as public, catholic or independent.
ASIC has announced a total of $180,000 (GST inclusive) for this grant opportunity.
The total amount of each grant in any rounds of this grant opportunity will depend on the nature and scope of Principals Project and may range from a minimum of $3,000 (GST inclusive) to a maximum of $5,000 (GST inclusive).
It is expected that up to 12 grants will be awarded in each round of this ground opportunity.
You must use the grant for the following Principal Project only as set out in the letter of agreement.
You can only spend grant funds on eligible grant activities as related to your Principal Project as set out in the grant details in your grant agreement.
To be eligible you must be a natural person who is a principal of a primary school in an Australian State or Territory.
Although under this grant opportunity, a grantee is a principal of a primary school, the ultimate beneficiaries of these grants are the primary school aged students and the broader community of that school. In the event a grantee (i.e. principal) departs a primary school, and there is a replacement or acting principal appointed for that school, then this individual must contact ASIC and APPA for a variation to or novation of the letter of agreement in accordance with section 10.4 of these guidelines to reflect this change of circumstance.
Applications close 26 October 2018.
