GLOBE has a long history of providing financial support to individuals, groups and organisations in the Melbourne LGBTI community with the GLOBE Community Grants. Over the last 26 years GLOBE has donated over $80,000 to worthwhile causes and activities. We are pleased to announce that GLOBE is now accepting applications for the 2018 GLOBE Community Grants. Applicants for the GLOBE Community Grants can apply for any amount up to $2000. We will accept applications for smaller projects that require less than $2000. Please specify how much funding you would like.
There is no specific application form. Instead could applicants please send, in no more than 2 A4 pages, a brief description of themselves, their group or organisation, the activities they undertake in the Melbourne LGBTI Community, the specific project or activity the GLOBE Community Grant will support, how this will be of benefit to the LGBTI Community and how much money you require. Can you please indicate in your application how you would promote the support that GLOBE and the GLOBE Community Grants have given you if you are a recipient.
GLOBE is pleased to announce the 2018 GLOBE Scholarship. This $1000 scholarship is open to LGTBI students or early career professionals. Its purpose is to support educational activities and help further develop careers. Examples include funding for a course or attending a conference. There is also no specific application form. Could applicants please send in no more than 2 A4 pages a brief description of themselves, their social situation, current educational or career status, the educational opportunity the Scholarship will support and how this will be of benefit to your education/career or even the wider LGTBI community. Could all applicants please provide a written reference from a teacher/lecturer/mentor.
GLOBE is also excited to announce two 2018 GLOBE Small Business Grants each worth $4000. This Grant is only open to current GLOBE members who are small business owners. Its purpose is to provide financial support to develop, expand and promote their small business. Could applicants please send in no more than 2 A4 pages a description of themselves, their small business and their specific plans for the Grant money. The four best applicants will be selected to “pitch” their business plan in person to a panel chosen by GLOBE at a special event to be held in June where the winner will be decided. We will also be announcing the recipients of the 2018 GLOBE Community Grants and Scholarship at this special event.
Please send the applications for the GLOBE Community Grants, Scholarship and Small Business Grant to Walter at email@example.com. All applications close Sunday April 1 2018. We would like the recipients of the Grants and Scholarship to provide GLOBE with a report of their activities by March 2019.
