Applications must be from:
- An Australian registered not-for-profit organisation (registered or established under a Commonwealth, State or Territory law, such as a company, partnership or association) or research institution. Profit-making organisations may also apply, but need to articulate their preferred mechanism for establishing a separate not-for-profit entity.
- Student applicants must provide proof of enrolment in an undergraduate or postgraduate degree course at an Australian university.
- Individuals who are not students are not eligible to apply for funding. They can, however, submit an application that is sponsored and authorised by an eligible organisation.
Applicants may submit more than one proposal. However, the Board is unlikely to fund more than one proposal per applicant.
