Australia-ASEAN Council 2020 Covid19 Special Grants Round

Funder:  Federal – Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Grant Background: The objectives of the Australia-ASEAN Council’s 2020 COVID-19 Special Grants Round are to support continuity in people-to-people and institutional engagement between Australia and the ASEAN region during and following the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, when restrictions on travel and social distancing will limit opportunities for face-to-face engagement and inward and outbound visits.

In this context, the round will target online and other activities or forms of engagement that help bring people together through virtual means and build cross-cultural linkages, but do not require travel and are consistent with government restrictions in response to COVID-19. Countries in scope include: Brunei Darassalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

The round will also prioritise applications that directly contribute to the priority needs of ASEAN countries during and immediately following the COVID-19 pandemic.
