Welcome to the Telematics Trust
Our vision is to use technology to transform lives through learning for the cultural, social and economic benefits of Victorians.
The Telematics Course Development Fund (Telematics Trust) is committed to funding initiatives that achieve our vision by demonstrating innovative use of technology through education.
We fund initiatives that use technology to reach diverse groups and address important practical problems in our community through education.
The initiatives demonstrate the innovative use of technology through education and they aim to measurably improve the well-being of the participants, the economy and the environment.
The Trust provides unique funding opportunities to individuals, Educational Institutes, Government, Business, social enterprises and Not-for-Profit organisations.
