Grants, awards and fellowships


University of the Sunshine Coast teaching staff are encouraged to undertake research and recognition activities related to teaching and learning.

Many of our educators undertake research into learning and teaching as part of their routine practice, and some seek University or national funding to allow them to extend the work to have broader resonance.

Similarly, some of our many outstanding teachers document their practice as a basis for winning national teaching citations.


  • USC's internal grant opportunities
  • National grant opportunities


  • National Award opportunities from Universities Australia (UA) (Details TBA)
  • The annual Advance Awards celebrate staff contributions to the student experience, quality teaching and blended learning.
  • USC's Vice-Chancellor's Medals for Learning and Teaching are annual awards presented to members of University staff in recognition of demonstrated excellence in learning and teaching. A learning and teaching award is also presented to a member of University sessional staff. Human Resources manage these awards. A showcase of the recipients of the Vice-Chancellor and President’s Awards for Excellence are listed in MyUSC (staff log in required).
