Health Cluster opens applications for Youth-led Education Project funding

Posted on September 12, 2017

The Health Cluster of the Australia-Indonesia Centre is offering $20,000 funding for Youth-led education projects focusing on primary prevention of Non-Communicable Diseases.

A total budget of $20,000 AUD is available with an expectation that between 4-5 projects will be funded. We suggest that applications consider a request to the AIC Health Cluster funding for between $4,000-$5,000 AUD, although individual projects costing less and more than this amount will also be considered (not all successful projects are expected to be funded the same amount).

The aim of these Youth-Led Projects is to improve the health literacy of Indonesian young people with a particular focus on the primary prevention of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). Priority will be given to projects that have a strong element of youth leadership, and that youth promote positive youth development and empowerment of young people. Projects that focus on children and young people up to 24 years old are the target.

Applications are sought for Youth-Led projects with a duration of 6 months. Applications for Youth-Led Projects with a projected duration of 10 months may also be considered on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of The University of Melbourne on behalf of the AIC Health Cluster, if a very high level of confidence can be provided about completion within this period.

Project agreements must be signed by no later than 9 November 2017. Project cannot commence until the Project Agreement has been signed.
