The Council on Australia Latin America Relations (Coalar) will award funding totalling $389,000 (excluding GST) to 14 projects across the priority areas of business, culture (including sport), education, sustainability and tourism. The 2013-14 program was approved by the Coalar Board.
139 Expressions of Interest were received in the 2013-14 Grant Round seeking over $5.5 million. 30 projects were shortlisted for further consideration.
Mr Chris Gale, Chair of Coalar, welcomed the strong interest in the grant program and thanked grant applicants for their time and efforts to present their initiatives.
Projects were selected that best met with Coalar's objectives and demonstrated the potential for the development of long-term links and cooperation between individuals and institutions in Australia with counterparts in Latin America.
