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?

Students in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences have the opportunity to access up to $2,500 of funding and partner with staff to make their project idea a reality through the Student Experience Innovation Grants Program.

You'll get the opportunity to:

  • Make a significant impact on students in our community.
  • Gain practical experience applying the skills you've learnt in your degree to a real world project.
  • Receive training and mentoring over six months to develop your project design, project implementation, marketing and communications, data analysis and reporting skills.
  • Build your resume and be recognised for your leadership 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.
