We regret to advise that the UQ Teaching and Learning Grant Schemes – Teaching Innovation and Early Career Educational Research Grants – will not be accepting new applications in 2020. These schemes have been placed on hold.

We hope to be able to call for applications again in future years.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) has committed $1.25 million in funding in 2019 for Teaching and Learning Grants, including Teaching Innovation Grants.
