Smartraveller Grant Program

 The Smartraveller Grants Program provides competitive funding from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) for projects that encourage smarter, safer overseas travel by Australians. it seeks to encourage positive changes in attitudes and behaviour among Australian travellers and improve the provision of information and services for Australian travellers, especially vulnerable and at-risk travellers. 

 The grants program will prioritise funding for activities that:

  • promote a culture of responsible travelling
  • raise public awareness of travel issues and risks
  • provide information and/or services to vulnerable or at-risk Australian overseas travellers

We welcome the ideas of a wide range of Australians.
