The University received 115 applications this round across five categories, the highest number of grant applications since the program began.
Charles Sturt’s CUP Grants Program provides financial grants of up to $1,500 to community groups, organisations, schools, and individuals in regions surrounding six of the University’s campuses: Albury-Wodonga, Wagga Wagga, Bathurst, Orange, Port Macquarie, and Dubbo.
Community groups from within the University’s region, including Narromine, Carcoar and Temora were just some of the winners of this round of CUP Grants. A full list of winners is available on the Charles Sturt website.
Charles Sturt Director of Industry and Community Engagement Associate Professor Laura Dan said the University was thrilled with the community’s response to the grants program and congratulated the winners.
“We are delighted with widespread support the grants program has received from the community and the impact this program will have across the University’s regional footprint,” Associate Professor Dan said.
“Each application was carefully assessed against the selection criteria. There were many worthy applications, and we look forward to the positive outcomes each project achieves in supporting their community.
“I want to extend my congratulations to all of the winners and I look forward to seeing all of their wonderful projects come to fruition”
The total amount of CUP Grants awarded in 2019 is worth more than $120,000 across the two rounds.
Applications for the grants were available across five categories: arts and culture, sports development, education development, Indigenous engagement, and health and wellbeing.
The goal of the CUP Grants Program is to support the development of communities across the University’s regional footprint through contributions to cultural, economic, and sporting activities.
