Lyra Taylor Fund Grant
The Lyra Taylor Fund was established by the Victorian Branch of the Australian Association of Social Workers and is administered to advance education in relation to social work by promoting, improving and maintaining standards of professional practice, education and research; establishing and maintaining continuing professional education opportunities for members; educating and informing the public and community institutions as to the aims and objectives of professional social work. The Fund also encourages and financially supports special projects that will benefit the community.
Grants from the fund may be made to Members of the AASW (Vic Branch) for projects consistent with the Fund purposes. In 2018 the Lyra Taylor Fund Committee will make up to $7,000 available for distribution and is calling for proposals for grants to be utilised in 2017.
