Australia-Korea Foundation Grants

2022-23 grant round

The Australia-Korea Foundation 2022-23 grant round has now closed.

The Australia-Korea Foundation is committed to supporting people-to-people and institutional engagement between Australia and Korea and encourages eligible individuals and organisations to apply.


The objectives of the Australian-Korea Foundation (AKF) are to:

  • increase public awareness of Australia in Korea, and of Korea in Australia, and the importance of the bilateral relationship
  • develop partnerships in areas of shared interest in the bilateral, regional and global context
  • increase Australians' capacity to effectively engage with Korea.

Key priority areas

  • Strategic international relations
  • Trade and commerce relationships
  • Cross cultural collaborations
  • Technological, scientific and education innovation.

Applications for activities that would strengthen cooperation between Australia and Korea to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic would be welcomed.

Frequency of grant rounds

Generally, the AKF will conduct one major grant round each financial year, advertised on the AKF website and Facebook page. If further funding becomes available, a subsequent 'inter-sessional' grant round may be held within the financial year.
