Smartraveller grants program

Applications for the Smartraveller Grants Program 2017-18 round are now open!

We are looking for the next great idea to encourage and help Australians travel safely overseas.

Funding is available for innovative, effective projects and partners who can help implement the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Consular Strategy 2017-19.

Our consular priorities include:

  • maximising public engagement with Smartraveller;
  • a focus on mental health;
  • exploring ways to expand victim support services overseas; and
  • seeking new opportunities to reach out to Australian travellers (from schoolies to cruise passengers and retirees) and provide the tools to help travellers help themselves.

If you have a great idea for a project to raise awareness of safe travel, especially for vulnerable and at-risk travellers, then we would like to hear from you.

Applications are open to individuals who are Australian citizens or permanent residents, and to Australian entities with an Australian Business Number (ABN) or Australian Company Number (ACN).

Applications close at 2:00pm on Monday 27 November 2017.
