HDR+ student grants are awarded each year to a range of creative and innovative student-led initiatives that help enhance the academic outcomes, and contribute to the development of HDR communities at the University.
The grant scheme invites applications for funding for projects that commence the following year. Each grant is worth up to $1200. The scheme is designed to support the development of essential research skills such as project management, proposal writing and project evaluation skills.
