The University of Tasmania's Community Engagement Grants are designed to support staff involvement in community engagement activities between UTAS and any external entities, such as individuals, community groups, professional bodies, business and industry, schools, government agencies and non-government organisations at the local, state, national and international levels.
The Academic Division is pleased to launch its Schools Engagement Grant Pilot as an extension of the Community Engagement funding initiatives facilitated by the Community, Partnerships and Regional Development’s portfolio.
Staff members are invited to apply for a mid-year (2017) round of engagement grants, specifically focused on schools engagement. The grants are designed to support UTAS staff to achieve the University’s strategic goals, as outlined in Open to Talent. They will also kick-start achievements that align with the aims of the recently adopted Schools Engagement Strategy. The Strategy seeks to expand opportunities for young people, from diverse backgrounds to access well designed and co-ordinated activities and/or programs that support their successful participation in higher education.
