HERDSA Grants Scheme


HERDSA offers grants to HERDSA members to fund research and/or development projects on teaching and learning in higher education that directly align to the mission of HERDSA . In the 2024 round, up to six grants of AUD$5000 each are available (plus GST for expenses accruing in Australia). Priority for one grant will be given to applicants identifying as Indigenous/First Nations (e.g., Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Māori or Pacific Nations).

The call for 2024 HERDSA Grant applications opens in 30 November 2023. Applications close at the end of February 2024. Successful applicants will be informed at the end of May 2024. Grant holders have one year to complete their projects. Grant progress reports are due end of January 2025 and final reports end of June 2025.
