This fund aims to support projects which can help to grow a skilled workforce. It is part of the Cyber Security National Workforce Growth Program which is part of Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy 2020.

We expect the types of projects that will be competitive for this funding will include collaborations between organisations such as industry associations and other bodies including:

  • higher education and vocational education providers
  • secondary schools
  • local and state governments
  • businesses.

To be eligible you must:

  • have an Australian business number (ABN)
  • be registered for the goods and services tax (GST)

and be one of the following entities:

  • an entity incorporated in Australia
  • an incorporated association
  • an incorporated not for profit organisation
  • an Australian State/Territory or Local Government agency or body.

Each application must be a joint application with a lead organisation, who is the main driver of the project and is eligible to apply, and at least one other project partner.

A state, territory or local government department is not eligible as the lead applicant, but may be a project partner in a joint application. For more information on joint applications, see section 7.2 of the guidelines. The eligibility criteria refer to the lead organisation only. 

We can only accept applications:

  • where you can provide evidence from your board (or chief executive officer or equivalent if there is no board) that the project is supported, and that you can complete the project and meet the costs of the project not covered by grant funding
  • where you provide a letter from each of your project partners supporting the project
