ATN Grants Scheme for Excellence in Learning and Teaching 2019

Students studying

The Australian Technology Network (ATN) has established a collaborative grants scheme for Excellence in Learning and Teaching. The aim of the grants program is to provide funding to facilitate scholarship and research into learning and teaching, and promote systemic change in the sector. 


The ATN are calling for academic and professional staff to submit applications for Strategic Initiative Grants to investigate, discover, develop and implement innovations in learning and teaching in higher education. 

A maximum of $250,000 is available for Strategic Initiative Grants.

The duration of Strategic Initiative projects is one year. Requests for extensions to two years will only be considered for very large projects.


Full-time, part-time and sessional academic and professional staff who are actively involved in learning and teaching related activities are eligible to apply for the Strategic Initiative Grants.
