The University of Queensland (UQ) New Staff Start-Up Grant – Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) scheme is a means by which the University provides resources to new Teaching Focused (TF) staff to assist them to build a profile in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

The aims of the scheme are:

  • to encourage new TF staff members to identify and develop an area of professional learning in SoTL that is relevant to their current and intended role; and
  • to provide limited seed funding as a means of generating future support from competitive internal and external grant schemes.

Funding available:

The scheme is funded jointly by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) and Faculties to a maximum combined total of $12,000 per grant per applicant. The total funding allocated to each applicant is at the recommendation of the relevant Faculty.
