Every year Study NSW co-funds projects that are delivered in partnership with industry.

Partner Projects for 2021/22 have just been announced!

Study NSW accepts applications from education providers and organisations that have a focus on international education.

We encourage partnership applications from a consortium of providers and/or organisations to ensure benefits reach a broad range of international students.

Funds of up to $110,000 (incl. GST) per project will be available for 2022-23. All funds must be matched by industry contribution, including through in-kind contributions.

Partner projects should be strategic, innovative, benefit the international education sector and address gaps not currently being addressed by the sector.

Current Partner Projects for 2021/22

International students in NSW will have access to a new digital mental health and wellbeing toolkit, as one of a number of programs that will enhance employability, entrepreneurship and research and development skills, thanks to $360,000 in funding from the NSW Government to support the sector.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Industry John Barilaro said the Partner Project funding from Study NSW will support the future of international education in NSW, an industry that has been hit hard during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The international education sector remains one of the state’s biggest exports, sustaining thousands of jobs across NSW,” Mr Barilaro said.

“These co-funded projects are part of a range of measures from the NSW Government to support almost 170,000 international students currently studying with NSW education providers both here and overseas.”
