Get a written quote… What does that mean?
At CREATE, we need quotes from you so we can see what you would like to request funding for. For instance, if you would like to do a course you will need to; 1. Find the organisation that offers the course; 2. Go and get a quote for the cost of the course; and 3. Attach the quote to your application form.
What makes a CREATE Your Future Grant Scheme Application great?
The best applications we receive are the ones that are completed in full. If an application is lodged that does not have all the information we need, it will be deemed ineligible (which means that we can’t assess your application).

We encourage all young people to complete the CREATE Your Future Application Form on their own, however you can receive assistance to do so. If you do receive assistance please let us know. If there is no one who can help, please email CYFgrants@create.org.au
What if I am not successful?

CREATE receives heaps of applications and unfortunately we don’t have the funds to support each and every applicant.
