Australia-Indonesia Institute

Schools Exchange Small Grants Program

The Schools Exchange Small Grants Program (SESGP) was created by the Australia-Indonesia Institute (AII) to encourage broader avenues of contact and exchange between Australian primary and secondary schools and their Indonesian counterparts.

Under the program, the AII intends to make a number of grants each year of up to $3,000 to assist Australian schools with the costs of bringing Indonesian primary and secondary school teachers and/or students to visit their schools and community.

In addition to expanding the level of personal contact between staff and students at Australian and Indonesian schools, it is envisaged that these visits will contribute to improving teaching skills and the development of curricula at participating schools.

The AII will consider applications for SESGP grants at its regular meetings which are usually held in July, November and March. Expressions of Interest should be submitted using the Online Expression of Interest Form and must be received by the AII Secretariat by the deadline for the receipt of expressions of interest for the relevant meeting.
