The NSW Government, through the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer, offers grants to support research conferences held in New South Wales.
The next round of the Conference Sponsorship Program will be open to individuals or organisations hosting a research conference in NSW.
Successful applicants are awarded funding of up to $10,000 each, depending on the overall quantity and quality of grant applications received.
The Conference Sponsorship Program is highly competitive and, as such, applications will be judged not solely on their own merit, but in relation to other applicants. The judging panel comprises Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer staff, as well as other independent panellist/s.
For further information about the Conference Sponsorship Program, including eligibility and section criteria, please refer to the Guidelines for Applicants – Conference Sponsorship Program available for download at the link below.
Details of funding recipients from previous rounds of the Conference Sponsorship Program can be viewed here.
The next round of the Conference Sponsorship Program is expected to open in late 2019. Please check this page for updates.
