Funding Program

With over 23,000 postgraduates across five campuses and numerous off-campus sites we know we can’t reach everyone, so we want to enable you to run the functions and events you care about. Through the Postgraduate Group Grant Scheme, we provide funding and support to help you and your group of postgraduates run conferences, seminars and social events.
