The Australian Government has committed $5 million (GST exclusive) in grants to support the provision of public interest journalism in regional Australia. This includes approximately $0.5 million in grants to support First Nations cadetships.

The objective of the Journalist Fund, First Nations Cadetships Round is to support regional First Nations media organisations in hiring new First Nations cadet journalists. The intended outcome of this round of the Journalist Fund is for these newly hired First Nations journalists to produce locally relevant core news content in regional areas and support the sustainability of First Nations regional media organisations.

First Nations Cadetships will support eligible First Nations regional media organisations to hire new First Nations cadet journalists who will be funded for two years.

Each cadetship package will have a total value (over two years) of up to $150,000, which includes the cadet’s salary, superannuation, on-boarding and hiring costs, relevant travel costs, and training.

The Government will contribute 70 per cent of each cadetship package, up to $105,000, and successful grant recipients will be required to contribute the remaining 30 per cent.

There is no minimum grant amount for this stream. Each applicant may apply for more than one cadetship. Applicants cannot use funding from other Commonwealth, state, territory or local government sources to fund their share of eligible expenditure required under round 1A.
