Application Process

  1. Check Eligibility

    Schools invited to apply for the grants being made available through the Matific Foundation must comply with a few simple criteria.

    • Have students that are aged between 5-12 years old
    • Have intermittent access to the internet
    • Have access to electricity (for charging/powering computers and tablet devices)
  2. Select the grant category that applies to your school

    The Matific Foundation is making it as easy as possible for schools to be able to apply for a grant. By offering two ptions for grant applications schools are able to ensure that they are specifically targeting the grant option which will impact their school the most.

    Option 1 - Matific Software Grant.

    This grant has $3,000,000 available for distribution and is for schools that have established hardware devices at the school. The Matific Software will be provided to the successful schools applicants completely free of charge. Matific's award winning resources are key to improving educational outcomes for students and this has been proven in multiple studies conducted in communities all around the world.

    Option 2 - Hardware + Software Grant.

    This grant has $2,000,000 available for distribution and is for schools that have internet and electricitiy available but are not able to make the impact required due to a lack of devices and quality educational resources. Mr Kamenev has kindly donated $1 million (AUD) for hardware devices which will be combined with an additional $1 million of Matific software.
