Social Inclusion

Can persons with disability (PWDs) apply?

Yes. Applications from eligible PWDs are highly encouraged. 

What are “reasonable adjustments”?

Reasonable adjustments are measures which an education provider is required to make to ensure students with a disability can meet the academic standards of their course of study and participate on the same basis as students without a disability. Reasonable adjustments might include changes to the way a person enrols in a course, alterations to the physical environment and other facilities, and changes to the way training is delivered and skills are assessed.

PWD awardees are assessed and provided reasonable adjustments to ensure that they succeed in their award. 

Are women prioritised in the selection process?

At least 50 percent of the awards will be given to qualified women applicants.
