Navitas Education Trust applications open for FY23
1st Feb, 2022 Feature story:
The FY23 funding round of the Navitas Education Trust (NET) is now open for applications, with leading global education provider Navitas on the lookout for development organisations in need of funding for education-based projects.
Drawing inspiration from the Navitas purpose of transforming lives through education, the NET provides support to development organisations with an education focus to bring about change where it is most needed. COVID-19 has significantly disrupted the education of many children around the world, meaning the work of NET partners has become more important than ever.
The NET has helped numerous organisations deliver positive educational outcomes to communities in many locations. Funding has been used to build classroom infrastructure, provide scholarships, support tuition centres, and more recently to produce digital teaching and learning resources and fund the construction of a school made from eco blocks (bricks made from recycled plastic).
For the FY23 round, Navitas has introduced priority countries in South America for the first time. Navitas CEO Scott Jones says, “After witnessing the success of NET-funded projects in Australia, Africa and Asia over the past eight years, we feel there are opportunities for us to extend the reach of the Navitas Education Trust and have specifically called out Peru, Ecuador and Colombia in this year’s application guidelines.”
Also new in FY23, the NET is seeking projects that demonstrate innovation in education and technology to help create a more sustainable world.
Application for funding is via online form, and submissions are open from Monday January 31 until Friday 18 March 2022. For more information about the NET and to obtain the FY23 application guidelines, please visit the Navitas Education Trust page on our website.
The Navitas Education Trust has donated over $2.8 million in grants to a diverse range of education-based projects around the world since its inception in 2013.
