The Charles Sturt University (CSU) Community-University Partnerships (CUP) Rural and Regional Sports Development Program is open for applications from Monday 1 June.
The Head of Campus at CSU in Albury-Wodonga, Professor Julia Coyle, said the CSU CUP Rural and Regional Sports Development Program provides registered community and sporting organisations with the opportunity to request a grant of up to $1 000.
"The aim of these grants is to encourage and support young people to participate in community sports," Professor Coyle said. "We look forward to seeing submissions from teams and organisations within the Albury-Wodonga region. The grants can be used to assist young rural sportspeople or teams to attend regional and national events, other one-off events, or to provide equipment to assist young people who have difficulty meeting the cost of participation in sports programs."
The CSU CUP Rural and Regional Sports Development Program has a total of $25 000 available for allocation across all CSU campus communities. Applications close on Tuesday 30 June and the guidelines and online application is here.
In addition to the CSU CUP Rural and Regional Sports Development Program, registered sporting organisations can request a grant of up to $500 for CSU to sponsor a local sporting team under the CUP Healthy, Active Sporting Regions Program. Each campus has $3 000 available and an application form is here.
Applications should be submitted to the local CSU Head of Campus. There is no closing date for this program and funds are disbursed on a first-in first-served basis.
