Applications are now open for Round Four of the National Careers Institute Partnership Grants program.

The Partnership Grants program offers funding to organisations to deliver innovative career guidance for people at all stages of their careers.

Round Four provides funding for organisations such as employers, training providers, schools and community organisations to improve young people’s access to the information and support services they need to make wellinformed decisions on their career pathway.

Funded projects will:

  • create greater awareness of career pathways and career information for young people not in education, employment or training 
  • contribute to an evidence base for addressing the needs of young people who are disengaged from education, employment or training 
  • enhance partnerships between employers, training providers, schools and community organisations that assist disengaged young people into further learning and work, including jobs in demand.

Grants range from $20,000 to $350,000 and will be funded for a maximum of 12 months.

Grant Opportunity Guidelines and application forms are available at and the National Careers Institute website.

Applications close 7 February 2022.

Who should apply?

Applications will only be accepted where the project is delivered through a collaborative partnership, as outlined in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines. 


The Australian Government is investing in innovative partnerships that connect employers, training providers, schools, community organisations and young people to develop programs, projects and initiatives that assist young people to make informed decisions about their education, employment and training pathways in a changing and diminished labour market.
