Applications are now open for the Copyright Agency Limited Cultural Fund’s annual grants for Australian writers, publishers and artists.
The IGNITE grants provide up to $5000 to an individual to enable them to “to acquire knowledge, to undertake mentorships, internships, residencies, leadership opportunities, and strategic promotional opportunities.” In 2017, I was fortunate enough to receive one of these grants, which supported me to attend the World Federation of Science Journalists conference in San Francisco (which you can read about here), so I would strongly encourage science writers to consider applying. Applications close 20 April 2018.
The CREATE grants, which offer $10,000, $15,000 or $20,000, are aimed at mid-career or established writers, and are intended to encourage the creation or development of new work. Applications close 18 June 2018.
