You can apply for a Australian gov grant for free, as grants are generally free to apply for nationwide, but any money you may receive as a result will not itself be free. The grants also have their own eligibility terms that must be met by all applicants. If you do receive a grant, you do not need to repay the money, which is the main advantage of grants, but they are more difficult to apply for than loans. To apply for a grant you need to write a proposal to the program you are considering which will be judged and the best proposal chosen. The writer of this proposal will be awarded the grant.
