On 11 June 2019, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission ABN 86 768 265 615 (ASIC) published the Principals Projects for Secondary Schools Grant Opportunity Guidelines on GrantConnect. The type of grant opportunity was closed and non-competitive, which invited the Australian Secondary Principals’ Association Inc. ABN 29 914 861 048 to submit an application under it.

​On 20 June 2019, ASIC awarded the one single grant of $198,000 (GST inclusive) to ASPA under this grant opportunity.

​This grant opportunity is announced as part of ASIC’s Moneysmart for teachers program.

​Under this grant, ASPA is to conduct or administer three rounds of funding for and on behalf of ASIC for the financial year period of 2019-2020, 2020–2021, and 2021–2022 for Principals of Secondary Schools under the ASIC’s Moneysmart for teachers Program.  


This funding opportunity is suitable for Principals of Secondary Schools to build consumer and financial literacy and capabilities to children as well as the broader community.

The objectives and intended outcomes of the funding are:

  • support better learning outcomes for secondary school-aged students with respect to their financial abilities

  • contribute to the financial wellbeing of school communities, and

  • for the composition of grantees in any rounds of this grant opportunity to broadly reflect the diverse range of secondary schools in Australia in respect of geographical location and entity types, such as public, catholic or independent.
