Apply for financial literacy funding

Supporting young people to be in control of their financial lives

Teachers play a pivotal role in helping students learn good money habits.

To help teachers do this, MoneySmart is working with primary and secondary principal associations to fund financial literacy project in schools. Funding is worth up to $5000 for each project.

We are looking for new, creative project ideas that:

  • teach kids how to budget and plan
  • integrates financial literacy across the whole school
  • incorporates cross sector collaboration
  • boosts parents' understanding of good money management
  • includes the local community.

Applications are open to school principals for the second round of primary grants and the first round of secondary funding.

We have partnered with the Australian Primary Principals Association and Australian Secondary Principals Association to deliver the funding.

If you are a teacher, and want to apply, send this to your principal.

Applications close 18 October 2019.
