Supporting the achievement of our Faculty's Diversity and Inclusion goals

MDHS Diversity and Inclusion Grants support academic staff to undertake scholarly-based work that directly aligns with and contributes to the implementation of our Faculty’s Diversity and Inclusion goals in order to enhance our Faculty's culture, equity, diversity and inclusion.

Examples include but are not limited to: a research investigation into the enablers and barriers for the career progression of staff with diverse personal attributes, experiences and backgrounds; or research into mitigating bias that can inform continuous improvements to our Faculty’s approach to assessing academic performance, including for promotion. These are only examples and applicants are encouraged to bring their own personal aspects and insights to their applications.

The Faculty of MDHS awards up to two Diversity and Inclusion Grants each year.

Grants include a maximum award of up to $25,000 for salary and research-related expenses.
