Knowledge Grants

New grants program for 2019/20 - Knowledge Grants

Knowledge Grants reflect our new focus on civil law and research. These grants will support organisations to develop their capacity to collect data, analyse and share information about civil legal need. Grants of up to $50,000 are available. This program replaces our General Grants program.

Guiding principles

Priority will be given to applications that can demonstrate the following:

Improving information

How improving your capacity to collect, analyse or integrate information will enable you to respond to a legal problem.

Knowledge sharing

How you will share the information and insights to benefit other organisations/service providers and the community you are trying to assist.

The types of applications we might fund include:

  • projects that will develop a new understanding of the legal needs of Victorians – collecting/collating data and information which has not been collected before and/or analysed in a new way
  • capacity building activities to help organisations collect and analyse data about particular audiences
  • scoping projects – that will gather evidence and may then seek further funding to implement responses.

For more information see our Knowledge Grant Guidelines.

Submit an application

The Knowledge Grant program will open from July 2019. The application form will available to download at this time. Applications must be submitted through the grants portal on the Foundation’s website by COB Monday 27 August 2019.
