Sorry, no. As an individual applying you need to be currently employed with a not for profit organisation that is supportive of you applying.
Unfortunately, no. So that we can support as many people as possible we are limiting our funding for individuals to $5000. In this example, we’d hope that your organisation would make up the shortfall.
Unless your business is set up as a registered charity or an incorporated society you cannot apply.
LIFT funding for individuals within an organisation is limited to $5000. Two or three individuals from the same organisation can apply, but they would need to share the $5000 between them.
If you are successful you cannot apply again within in a 12-month period. You can apply again the following year, but keep in mind we want to support as many individuals as possible so you might not be successful in future years.
Anyone employed on a contract or permanent basis, including: new employees, a subcommittee or unpaid volunteers, can apply.
Yes but there would be no guarantee of funding for those next years.
*Please note this is not an exhaustive list.
Yes—supervision + short course, for example; or if two staff want to go on four courses (as long as it’s under $5K in total).
