A grant scheme to support staff and HDR students
UNSW is committed to supporting all employees and Higher Degree Research (HDR) students balance work-life responsibilities and recognises the challenge of participating in career development opportunities while fulfilling roles as parents and primary carers.
In 2023, UNSW replaced the Vice-Chancellor’s Childcare Support Fund for Women Researchers with the introduction of the Carers’ Support Fund, which broadens eligibility criteria to:
- All UNSW employees (professional and academic) and HDR students of all genders with both childcare and primary caring responsibilities.
- Participation in a wider range of career development activities, such as networking and fieldwork.
