Wednesday, 1 Mar 2017

CUP logoTwo categories of Charles Sturt University (CSU) Community-University Partnership (CUP) grants in 2017 opened for applications on Monday 27 February.

Head of Campus at CSU in Orange, Dr Heather Robinson, said, "A range of organisations that enrich our regional communities benefit from the practical support of the CUP grants.

"The CUP grants contribute to cultural, economic, sporting and related activities that support the development of our regions, which in turn promotes awareness particularly among young people in rural and regional communities and fosters their aspiration for higher education.

"I encourage the representatives of relevant and interested groups to consider applying, and I look forward to receiving their applications."

The 2017 CUP grant categories available from Monday 27 February are CUP Head of Campus Small Grants Program, and CUP Rural and Regional Arts and Culture Program. Subsequently, the CUP Rural and Regional Education Development Program opens on Monday 3 April; the CUP Rural and Regional Indigenous Community Engagement Program opens on Monday 1 May; and the CUP Rural and Regional Sports Development Program has two opening dates – 'Summer' on Monday 1 May, and 'Winter' on 4 September.
