World Access to Higher Education Day #WAHED2021
Australasian Spotlight on Equity: Grants for recognition of impact
In 2021 EPHEA and NSCEHE awarded two Australasian Spotlight on Equity: Grants for recognition of impact.
Congratulations to the RMIT University Career Success Program, and Monash University's Experiences of Students from Asylum-Seeking backgrounds in Higher Education initiative.
Impact grants recognise the impact of equity practitioners and researchers. The grants aim to:
raise awareness and the profile of equity programs and research at an institutional level;
provide an avenue for staff and student equity programs and equity researchers to receive grant funds to assist in maximising impact of their activities;
offer a funding source to provide equity practitioners the opportunity to disseminate their practice/research or undertake ongoing professional development nationally and internationally.
