District Grants applications for 2021-22 are now open

The 2021 – 2022 round of District Grants are currently open for applications from Rotary Clubs in District 9780.  District Grants support small scale local and international projects, scholarships, vocational training teams, and related travel that conform to the mission of The Rotary Foundation..  See for more detail.
The District grant will match funds contributed to the project up to maximum of AU$3,000 per club funded on a 1:1 basis.   If applications are received for funds greater than the amount of District Designated Funds available, the awarding of grants will be on a competitive basis assessed against District 9780 criteria.
Due to the COVID-19 situation the only way for clubs to qualify is for a member to take the  Grant Management Seminar this year on-line at the RI Learning Center.
