Student Experience Innovation Grants

Do you have an idea that will facilitate cross-cultural connections and make an impact on the academic, personal or professional success of our students?


Through the Student Experience Innovation Grants program, students in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences have the opportunity to access up to $2,500 of funding and partner with student leaders and university staff to make their project idea a reality. 

You will get the opportunity to:

  • Make a significant and meaningful impact on students in our community.
  • Gain practical experience applying the skills and knowledge you have learnt in your degree to a real-world project.
  • Receive mentoring and training with university staff to develop your project design, project implementation, marketing and communications, data analysis and reporting skills.
  • Build your resume and leadership skills while being recognised as a Student Award winner as part of this prestigious program.

In previous years, the Student Experience Innovation Grants program funded and developed student-led projects like Law Reform Project, Language Buddies, the Therapaws: Dog therapy program, Sculpture by the Sea Coastal Walk, Australian Sporting Experience, World Mental Health Festival, Taronga Zoo Safari and more.The selection and award of the grant recipients will be undertaken by a Student Experience Innovation Grants Committee, comprised of nominated University of Sydney staff and student members.
