About the scheme
Each year, the SHSOV offers support grants to allow applications to undertake a professional educational activity in the field of sexual health or an allied discipline. These grants are intended to provide ‘top-up’ or support funding for those who may otherwise be unable to undertake the activities for which funding is sought.
Anyone living or working in Victoria with a professional or other interest in sexual health or a related field, such as family planning and reproductive health, may apply. SHSOV membership is not a prerequisite. Successful applicants from previous years may apply again, however preference will be given to new applicants.
The maximum amount of funding available per applicant in 2023 is $500. The total amount awarded will be decided by the committee, and may be lower than requested.
How the funds may be used
Grant funds can be used to retrospectively to cover costs for activities already undertaken in 2023.
Each application will be marked based on the following criteria:
Applicants must agree to provide a 100-word statement on how the grant was used and how it was of benefit if successful. Successful applicants may also be asked to present their work at the SHSOV annual conference report-back seminar.
