Bridging Grants Round 2018 (Call 182) Opens June 4th

We are pleased to announce that Bridging Grants (BG) open for eligibility testing from 0900hr (AEST) on the 4th June 2018 and this phase will close at 1700 hr (AEST) on the 14th June 2018. Once BG eligibility has been approved and a BG application number issued, a full BG application can be prepared and lodged. 

  • All Bridging Grant applications are time stamped and must be received by 17.00 Hr (AEST) on the 28th June 2018. No late applications will be accepted. You will be unable to lodge a BG application online after this time even if they are partially saved in the system.
  • All applicants will be notified personally of the outcomes of the grant round process no later than the August 31st.

The timetable for this call is also published on the GCF website.

In the lead up to this next round we have made available on the Global Connections Fund website all of the Bridging Grant information required to prepare an application. This includes the guidelines, the FAQs, eligibility criteria and details on the process of application. 

This will enable interested parties to consider this material in advance and prepare for an initial eligibility assessment. The application process will require an approval at the eligibility assessment stage before a full application can be made. This is done through a quick online test. You can only take the test once so we ask you read the material associated with this process carefully.
