Career Development Scholarships

Collaborate. Innovate. Learn. Develop. Share. Achieve. Lead.

The Career Development Scholarship program has closed for 2017. Please re-visit this site in early 2018 for information on future programs.

Career Development Scholarships seek to support staff to participate in self-identified learning and development activities that align with Performance and Career Development (PACD) plans and the needs of their Faculty/Institute/Division, and that are not normally supported via other means.  

The 2017 themes were cross-institutional collaboration and cross-institutional leadership. Applications which address annual themes were strongly encouraged and looked upon favourably by the selection committee.

A total of 21 individual scholarships and 17 group scholarships were awarded in 2017, directly supporting the career development of over 180 staff. Scholarships have this year been awarded to Academic and Professional staff representing all Colleges, Faculties, Institutes and Divisions of the University. The types of activities funded include:

  • Collaboration with innovative or best practice individuals, industry groups, community organisations and institutions
  • Professional development opportunities which offered alternative, innovative or entrepreneurial methodologies, practices or approaches
  • Short term visits to other universities and/or relevant private sector organisations to further learn and develop partnerships that benefitted the University workplace
  • Establishment of internal or external cross-discipline/function communities of practice to increase collaboration and idea sharing.
