Charles Sturt University recently awarded $67,050 to 67 community groups across the University's regional footprint in the second and final round of the 2019 Community- University Partnership (CUP) Grants Program. The University received 115 applications this round across five categories, the highest number of grant applications since the program began.
Charles Sturt's CUP Grants Program provides financial grants of up to $1,500 to community groups, organisations, schools, and individuals in regions surrounding six of the University's campuses: Albury-Wodonga, Wagga Wagga, Bathurst, Orange, Port Macquarie, and Dubbo.
The total amount of CUP Grants awarded in 2019 is worth more than $120,000 across the two rounds. Applications for the grants were available across five categories: arts and culture, sports development, education development, Indigenous engagement, and health and wellbeing. The goal of the grants is to support the development of communities across the University's regional footprint through contributions to cultural, economic, and sporting activities.
