Wellbeing Grants 2024

We are excited to announce that current students and staff can now apply for grants of up to $1000 to deliver projects which foster student wellbeing at the University of Adelaide.


The Wellbeing Grant Project aims to facilitate initiatives within the university community which boost student wellbeing, mental health and connection. Our grants support individuals and groups to use their own knowledge, resources and talents to create an impact. 

Target audience

Projects must focus on supporting student wellbeing. We recognise that this also encompasses activities that help staff to better support students.

Focus areas and eligibility

The Wellbeing Grant Project aims to promote holistic wellbeing across the eight dimensions of the "Wheel of Wellbeing".

Applications will be evaluated based on their alignment with one or more areas of the wheel. Projects that align with specific initiatives run by the wellbeing team, such as Sexual Health Month (September) Mental Health Awareness Month (October) are encouraged. 

We are committed to taking a well-rounded approach, and will be supporting a diverse range of projects, spread across the year, as we aim to deliver consistent messaging regarding wellbeing across the seasons.
