Widening participation Grants

Please contact Charlotte Taylor – charlotte.taylor@sydney.edu.au 

For further information on the grants detailed below.  

 The University has allocated over 800K of funds from the Higher Education Participation
and Partnerships (HEPPP) scheme to directly support faculty initiatives to address the
Government’s and the University’s commitment to social inclusion and widening
participation in higher education.  This funding is available to faculties through a
range of new partnership, curriculum and research grants.  The grant initiatives are
managed as a partnership between the Institute for Teaching and Learning and the Social
Inclusion Unit.  There are three categories: 

1.Community Engagement Grants for Social Inclusion partnerships ($10-30K): These grants
support faculties or divisions to engage in partnership activities with schools or
communities aimed at widening participation.  

 2.Inclusive Curriculum Renewal Grants ($5-15K): These grants support implementation and
integration of inclusive teaching strategies into curricula and teaching, especially in
first year units.  

 3.Research on Inclusion/Exclusion ($5-25K): These grants support research of three
types: research on inclusion that relates to pathways to higher education, research on
inclusion that relates to higher education teaching and curriculum and evaluation
research on widening participation strategies.  



Full details of the grants, the application process, timeline, selection criteria are
available at http://www.itl.usyd.edu.au/projects/inclusiveteaching/wpgrants.htm.  Only a
