Henry Halloran Trust


4 November 2013

The University of Sydney, through the generous gift of Warren Halloran, has established the Henry Halloran Trust to promote scholarship, innovation and research in town planning, urban development and land management.

This will be achieved through collaborative, cross-disciplinary and industry research that will support innovative approaches to urban and regional policy, planning and development issues.

The trust is in honour of
Henry Halloran, who was an active advocate for town planning in the first half of the twentieth century.

The initial funding round of the Trust is now open. Two types of project funding are available:

  • Strategic partnership grants are grants where the Trust shares research funding in conjunction with other funders/organisations
  • Blue Sky project grants will promote explorations and research into innovative ideas and concepts that focus on the interactions between the environment, technology and community which stimulate new ideas/practices about land use and settlement design.

More information, including application forms and information for applicants, can be found on the website.

Amount: Up to $100,000
Closing date: 2pm, 6 December 2013
