EGI Projects

Enabling Growth and Innovation Program

 
The Enabling Growth and Innovation (EGI) Program was announced in the 2016-17 Budget with funding of $3 million per annum to support the implementation of the National Strategy for International Education 2025 (the National Strategy). The objective of the EGI Program is to support big-picture projects that develop Australia’s role as a global leader in education, training and research. Projects must contribute to at least one of the goals of the National Strategy and benefit the broader Australian international education community. Three funding rounds have now been held, with a total of 47 projects funded.

The details of 2019-20 funding opportunities will be made available shortly. Please monitor this website for updates.
