The Dalyell Grants Program provides funding and support for Dalyell Scholars and staff to create innovative new co-curricular projects that build a sense of community and develop graduate qualities at the highest level within the Dalyell Scholars cohort.
Project ideas include a trivia night, group dinner, employer networking event or a writing competition. Any idea for a co-curricular activity that will positively impact the Dalyell Scholar cohort will be considered.
You can apply as an individual student, a group of students, or a group made up of students and faculty or school staff. Each grant is worth up to $3000 for project ideas in the areas of social activities and mentoring, professional development, community contribution and academic research.
The total pool of funding for Semester 2, 2021 is $20,000.
Grant applications for projects will be assessed against the following criteria:
Equity and strategies for engaging diverse student groups will be highly regarded.
Projects must impact a wide group of Dalyell Scholars. Funding is not available for individual activities.
You are eligible to apply if you are a currently enrolled Dalyell Scholar.
Applications for Semester 2, 2021 close 9am, Wednesday 25 August.
To apply, you’ll need to complete the application form and proposal online, including details of your project design such as budget, timeline and activities and making sure you address the assessment criteria. Your application may include multiple events or activities.
You may apply once per semester.
For teams that include staff, each faculty and school can apply once per semester.
Applications will be assessed by a committee of staff and Dalyell student representatives. We aim to assess applications and notify successful applicants on email by Tuesday 7 September 2021.
