The Jack Brockhoff Foundation is upgrading its grants processes.  Those intending to apply for a DIssemination grant must call the Executive Officer to discuss their request before preparing their formal application. Applications will now be completed online in a new format.

Purpose of Dissemination grants

The Jack Brockhoff Foundation seeks to maximise the impact of work it funds. It will support efforts of grant
recipients to disseminate their findings in Victoria and beyond,and thereby improve practice more widely.

$ Value of Dissemination grants

Grant recipients may apply for a Dissemination Grant for an amount between $500 and $5000.

Conditions of Dissemination grants

Dissemination Grants are offered after successful completion of projects already supported by The Jack Brockhoff Foundation.

The rationale for seeking a Dissemination Grant should be clearly based upon what was newly-learned from the original Jack Brockhoff Foundation grant.

Potential for improved practice in Victoria is a key criterion.

An evaluation report ( Dissemination Grant Report) will be expected at the conclusion of dissemination activity.

Conditions of Dissemination grants

Applicants must decide which dissemination strategy and plan best suits their setting and the Foundation will be flexible in its assessments of applications.

Proposals may include (but are not limited to) funding for:

  • Workshops
  • Short training courses
  • Coaching clinics
  • Webinars
  • Travelling roadshows
  • Internet-based self-directed learning
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Presentations at conferences attended by Victorian practitioners
  • Conference presentations
  • Sponsored sessions at conferences
  • Travel costs for teachers
  • Attendance costs for learners
  • Technical support, publicity, venue hire or catering.

Funding will not be provided to fund the writing of academic papers or attendance at conferences away from Victoria.

Timing for Dissemination applications

Dissemination Grant Applications may be lodged at any time throughout the year. Decisions will be made at the Board meeting following lodgement, provided the application is received at least two weeks in advance of the Board Meeting. The Board meets in February, May, September, and November.

Electronic payment of grants

The Jack Brockhoff Foundation delivers grants by direct electronic payment into a nominated account with a financial institution.  Successful applicants will be asked to provide banking and account details when they are advised of the success of their application.
