Grant Funding

The Innovation Fund Program provides an opportunity to secure financial support for projects that advance the international education sector in Western Australia.

As we begin to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we invite applications for projects that promote Western Australia and help rebuild/build relationships with key distribution partners.

Innovation Fund Program Funding Categories

The Innovation Fund Program is divided into two grant funding categories.

Category 1 - Collaborative Projects up to $50,000 (+gst)

Projects must be collaborative and inclusive. Collaborative Projects must be submitted by an identified Project Lead, an employee or authorised representative of a StudyPerth Education or Associate Member.

Category 2 - Individual Projects up to $5,000 (+gst)

Projects do not need to be collaborative. Applications will be accepted for projects from eligible individual organisations by an employee or authorised representative of organisation.
