Awards and Grants

Western Sydney University has established and supports a number of award and grant initiatives to reward, recognise and encourage staff who demonstrate excellence and innovation in their teaching and programs. The University continues to develop these initiatives and encourage and celebrate excellence at individual, team and program levels.

The provision of dedicated support for the development of Awards and Citations, Grants and Fellowship applications administered by the Office for Learning and Teaching further strengthens professional development opportunities for both professional and academic staff.
