Applications for District Grants for 2024-25 are now open
The 2024 – 2025 round of District Grants is 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.
Before applying for a District Grant send a copy of the Grant Management Recertification completion certificate and the current MOU documents signed by both the Club President for 2024-25 and incoming President for 2024-25 to the DGSCC as per the address below.
