AMP’s Tomorrow Fund is once again offering $1 million in grants to amazing Australians doing great things – including researchers, educators and innovators.
Now in its fifth year, this program is open to individuals of all ages, walks of life and abilities. Among the 45 Australians who shared in $1 million in AMP Tomorrow Fund grants last year were a marine biologist, a systems engineer, a neuropsychologist, a radiation oncologist, a built environment consultant and several medical researchers.
