Get Online Week Event Grants: Round Two Applications

8 July 2019 12:00 am Australia/Hobart

    Get Online Week Event grants are one-off $1,500 grants available to all Be Connected Network Partners to host an event during Get Online Week (14 – 20 October 2019) to promote your organisation and reach new people in your community.

    Get Online Week is an international digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Foundation. Last year, over 750 events were held across the country giving thousands of Australians the opportunity to try one new thing online as a next step to improving their digital skills. This year’s campaign will take place from 14 – 20 October 2019, and all Get Online Week Event grant holders will engage their communities and spread the message that gaining digital skills can improve people’s lives. Through BBQ’s, digital scavenger hunts, morning & afternoon teas and open days, we’ll help people in our communities with limited digital skills to make the most of the internet.
