Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP)
The NSW Equity Consortium is proudly supported by the Australian Government through the Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) which provides funding to universities to implement strategies that improve access to undergraduate courses for people from regional and remote Australia, low socio-economic status (SES) backgrounds, and Indigenous persons. HEPPP also helps to improve the retention and completion rates of those students.
Collaboration and Innovation Fund
The NSW Equity Consortium is proudly funded by the NSW Government, Department of Education, through the Collaboration and Innovation Fund which aims to enhance collaboration between universities and the NSW Government to address social, economic, and environmental challenges.
