Other Programs

Community University Partnerships

The University also provides funding to support a range of other University-led initiatives. These programs are not available as community grant programs, so members of the community cannot apply to receive funding.  However, we welcome suggestions if you have a really great idea for initiatives that might fall within the funding parameters that you think the university should consider.  The programs are listed below:

Rural and Regional Conference Grants Program

This fund has been established to assist in attracting or staging conferences, seminars or similar events in CSU's campus towns consistent with the University's educational or research mission and role. It is not available for CSU academic or research conferences that are eligible for support through the Office of Research. Grant funding is only available in Australia at this time.

Explorations Series – Bringing Thought Leaders to Regional Australia

This fund is to support the conduct of Charles Sturt University initiated public lectures, seminars and related activities on the campuses of Charles Sturt University in each of our regions and to engage the community in discussion about issues of national and regional importance. The University welcomes suggestions for speakers and topics from the community. Funding is only available in Australia at this time.

Rural and Regional Engagement Travel Fund

This fund is to support members of Regional Consultative Committees who live more than 150km from a campus to travel to, and participate in, Regional Consultative Committee meetings, and to fund a joint regional consultative committee meeting every 2-3 years on a campus of Charles Sturt University. Grant funding is only available in Australia at this time.

In addition to the CUP grants, the University also distributed more than $2 million annually to students enrolled at Charles Sturt University in scholarships and grants, including:

Charles Sturt University Student Scholarship Program 

The University and Charles Sturt University Foundation (with the generous support of our communities) provide a wide range of scholarships for members of the community enrolling in a program of study at Charles Sturt University.  

Charles Sturt University Student Grant Program

The University makes available a number of grant programs for enrolled students at Charles Sturt University to meet the cost of textbooks, relocation, residential schools and other activities.  

CSU Global – Vice-Chancellor's Travel Grants (two grant schemes with an individual value of $500 and $1500 each)

Each year the University provides thousands of dollars in scholarships and grants to assist enrolled Charles Sturt University students to travel and take part in a Student Exchange Program with one of our many overseas partner universities.
