Grants - Open grants, QLD Grants
Please note: Due to COVID-19, applications may be indefinitely suspended at any point.
This program, formerly known as Young Athletes Travel Subsidy, aims to foster the development of young athletes and officials by providing funding support to help alleviate the costs associated with attending championship events.
Subsidies are available in three funding tiers (GST exclusive):
– State or State school events: Up to $200
– National or national school event: Up to $400
– International events: Up to $600
This program will allow up to a maximum of $1,200 in financial assistance over the three event tiers, once every two calendar years.
