Public Diplomacy Fund

The Public Diplomacy fund is an annual programme that supports New Zealand organisations in their collaborations with Australia. The purpose of the fund is to help local organisations to engage with their Australian counterparts, strengthen the collaborative ties between our countries and showcasing Australian talent. As an example, the funding may contribute to the cost of airfares or accommodation when an organisation is bringing an Australian delegate/performer/artist/academic to New Zealand for a particular event.

 

Funding arrangements are allocated on an annual basis (1 July to 30 June) and monies paid in a financial year must be for an event/activity occurring in the same financial year.

 

The Australian High Commission will seek applications prior to the start of the financial year and set a budget accordingly. Applications received outside of this timeframe may be considered, where funding is available.

The purpose of the fund is to connect, mobilise and celebrate the achievements of Australian Alumni in New Zealand.

Successful applications will facilitate Australia’s connection with these alumni, promote their achievements and strengthen the bilateral ties between Australia and the alumni’s home country.
