The Endeavour Foundation Endowment Challenge Fund closing 21st April 2017 (QLD and NSW)

The Endeavour Foundation Endowment Challenge Fund has two opportunities open for application:

The two grant categories are explained below:

Research Award

This award targets applicants with appropriate qualifications, and are employed by a host institution, at which they will conduct the proposed research project. This institution may be a university, a university affiliate, or an appropriate independent research institute. In 2017, the Endeavour Foundation Endowment Challenge Fund will make one award of $50,000 to fund research to advance the health, wellbeing and life experiences of people with a disability, in particular people with an intellectual disability.

Non-profit Organisation Award

This category targets non-profit organisations in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, such as sporting, artistic, cultural or music organisations. The aim of this award is to encourage non-profit organisations to consider how they could directly include people with a disability (especially people with an intellectual disability) within their current work and practice. Non-profit organisations may request a grant to develop and/or run a project that would enable them to expand their current activities and better engage with people with a disability, or to fund the purchase of specialist equipment to allow them to include people with a disability. Disability-specific non-profit organisations may also apply for innovative projects that enhance social inclusion for people with a disability, but ongoing programs of service delivery will not be funded. In 2017, the Endeavour Foundation Endowment Challenge Fund has a total pool of $35,000 available within this category.  Non-profit organisations are invited to apply for up to maximum amount of $35,000.
