Australasian Spotlight on Equity:
Grants for recognition of impact


Equity Practitioners in Higher Education Australasia (EPHEA) and the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) have partnered to provide a grant that recognises the impact of equity practitioners and researchers. This recognition will take the form of an official commendation and sponsorship opportunity for those engaged in equity research and/or practice activities. The grants aim to:

  1. raise awareness and the profile of equity programs and research at an institutional level;

  2. provide an avenue for staff and student equity programs and equity researchers to receive grant funds to assist in maximising impact of their activities;

  3. offer a funding source to provide equity practitioners the opportunity to disseminate their practice/ research or undertake ongoing professional development nationally and internationally.

Grants totalling $10,000.00 in value will be awarded to successful candidates. Please note that the total grant pool is $10,000 and that there may be up to four grants awarded from this total pool of funding.
