Supporting our communities
University of Wollongong staff and community organisations have access to a range of grants and funding opportunities to address key challenges in our communities.
The University values connection to community and annually contributes to new and innovative programs delivering positive outcomes.
The Community Engagement Grants Scheme (CEGS) offers a series of annual grants, which are open to UOW staff in the area of educational, research or outreach projects, in partnership with community organisations and groups.
UOW also seeks to build strong communities facilitated by the Community Investment Program. The Program aims to play an active role in advancing and championing social, cultural, environmental and economic developments in our region with a view to drive innovation resulting in change that has impact.
